This wine is a blend of 12 blocks from within the Hentley Farm vineyard, all with variances in soild, row orientation, clonal selection and micro-climate. This is all in order to create an estate grown wine which displays the treasured characteristics the property naturally produces in Shiraz: saturated colour, fruit intensity and soft, savoury tannins. The top soil is predominantly a red clay loam, and the subsoil varies from shattered limesone to salt & pepper siltstone and bluestone at depth – a diversity which produces an incredibly compelling wine.
Blackberry and liquorice lead the way with dark chocolate and cigar box hiding in the background. Layers of rich fruit are loaded on the front of the palate followed by chocolate and vanilla. Great tannin structure throughout and the persistence you would expect from the Hentley Farm Estate.
