Tasting Notes

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 in the middle. Great tannin structure throughout and the persistence you would expect from the Hentley Farm Estate.

The Producer

Hentley Farm is a boutique single estate winery that produces wines reflective of its exceptional Seppeltsfield site and microclimates. James Halliday, the revered Australian wine critic, scored Hentley Farm with the highest average scores of any Australian winery from 2015 to 2018. Today, it remains the only Barossa Valley winery to be named Australia’s “Winery of the Year” and continues to hold 5 red star status.

Vinification

The fruit was de-stemmed prior to fermentation, during which 2-3 pump overs a day were
used to ensure that each wine achieved a full tannin structure. Time on skins ranged from
7-50 days before pressing and settling. The wine completed secondary fermentation in new
(10%) & old (85%) French and American oak barrels, before blending in October, a total
maturation period of 10 months. No fining or filtration was used in the production of this
wine.
