This is a single vineyard example of the quintessential Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet. The 2010 Creation was the first opportunity to create this blend at Hentley Farm and the subsequent success of this wine indicated it should become a regular in our premium range, thus the Quintessential Shiraz Cabernet was born.
Mushroom, truffle, earth and smoked meats fill this savoury scented nose and are complemented by underlying aromatics of cherry and mint. Savoury aromatics are mirrored on the palate and combine perfectly with the soft yet full palate that displays the impact of extended maceration perfectly. A surprising mid palate fruit sweetness and outstanding length round out this complex wine.
