The addition of Zinfandel to the traditional blend of Grenache and Shiraz is unique to Hentley Farm. With each variety separately crushed, fermented and matured, the Stray Mongrel displays the level of aromatic and flavour complexity you would expect from a blend of such diverse varietals. It is the perfect companion to a variety of culinary delights.
Traditional aromatics of strawberries and raspberries are joined by alluring aromatics of rose petal, Turkish delight and an underlying stone fruit lift. Soft even tannin manages to fill every crevice of the palate, providing the framework for a flavour profile of luscious red fruits and a savoury finish.
