The Marl Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Hentley Farm
Dark blueberry and blackberry aromatics mingle with a slight mint lift. The palate is a classic example of Barossa Cabernet with density, rich fruit and grippy tannins throughout.
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.
The Cabernet grapes were harvested early from a well shaded canopy to ensure retention of classic Cabernet leaf and plush herbal characters, and fermentation temperatures were kept cool to further aid this varietal definition. Malolactic fermentation in seasoned oak and a total maturation period of 10 months. No fining or filtration.
