The Beauty block is grown at the lowest point of the Hentley Farm vineyard, directly on the banks of Greenock Creek. The western aspect results in a shaded morning; the low topographical position is where cool air settles; and the large gum trees surrounding the block create significant barriers to air movement, so cool air remains present well into the morning. This results in early morning air temperatures 2-3 degrees cooler than the higher Shiraz blocks.
Incredibly lifted and complex perfume of florals, stone fruits and tropical fruits including jasmine, peach, satsuma plum, passionfruit, quince. These aromas are emulated on the palate which is full, yet soft and supported by elegant tannins, great length and well integrated oak.
