97 Points - Magda Sienkiewicz " You cannot escape the expectation of great intensity here with deep, saturated black core however, the old saying is – never judge a book by its cover. Incredibly aromatic and uplifting nose filled with blackcurrant, mulberry and eucalyptus. The palate is expansive and expressive. Abundant fruit takes the lead over beautifully judged acidity and svelte tannins. Incredible poise and polish. Multi-dimensional and rich without heaviness or over extraction. Covering every facet of your palate and leading to a long and elegant finish, this is a sensational Cabernet which deserves a firm place amongst the very best of Barossa Valley and Australia as a whole."

95 Points - James Halliday "Parcels of fruit are separately fermented and taken to barrel for mlf and 6 months maturation before blending and returned to oak for a further 18 months maturation in French oak (30% new). Deep, bright colour; an ultra-powerful, full-bodied cabernet sauvignon in bold Barossa Valley style. Given the fresh, easy to drink now other wines from Hentley Farm, it shouldn't be hard to keep your hands off this for 5+++ years."

Producer

Barossa Valley based Hentley Farm Wines was founded by Keith and Alison Hentschke who acquired the land and property in the 1990s. The pair researched the land to find the best soils upon which to plant their vines and it wasn’t until 2002 that any wines were released from Hentley Farm as the owners were perfecting the vineyards. Soon after successfully launching their wines, Keith and Alison acquired the neighboring vineyard Clos Otto Block in 2004 which forms the basis for the famous Clos Otto Shiraz.

Hentley Farm Wines, Barossa Valley, Australia

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
