Hentley Farm A2 Block Old Vine Shiraz 2016
Hentley Farm's founder Keith Hentschke was a perfectionist when it came to matching specific sites with clonal characteristics, using agricultural science expertise to get the best out of the grape and the site. To this day the same philosophy resonates in the vineyards and the A2 Block is a perfect example. Originally planted as Cabernet(and not that successful), this A2 Block, with west facing orientation and deep red soils with clay layers is now Shiraz planted and rightly so when you taste this vintage.
Blueberries and stone fruits provide outstanding intensity with a pretty fragrance that also presents pepper and violets, adding to the complexity. The flavours provide a mirror image of the aromas andcombine with soft even tannins throughout the palate. Great acid and oak balance on the palate bring the whole package together.
