Hentley Farm The Beauty Shiraz 2016-2017
Hentley Farm produces premium quality single-estate and single-block wines from the vines grown on its Seppeltsfield property – an old 150-acre vineyard and mixed farming property. Specializing in rich, elegant, Barossa Shiraz, Hentley Farm also produces other varietals including Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Viognier.
Peach, apricot, and florals provide the lift while surrounded by blue and red fruits, white pepper and peaty earth sitting further in the background. This complex combination of flavours continues onto the palate with the blue/red fruits playing the leading role. Bright acid and tannin drive provides great focus down the middle, colorful fruits providing the framework. Soft, expressive, and complex.

Vintage 2014 - Size, shape, power and length; there's a lot crammed into this package, and yet at no point does it suggest being overdone. It's a fresh, vigourous red with anise, raspberry, squishy blackberries and wood spice notes ramping the appeal up high. It'll age but there's no real reason to wait.
