The Marl Shiraz 2020, Hentley Farm, Barossa Valley
Out of stock
Ripe blueberries combine with some bright, confected red fruits with a slight floral lift. Grippy tannins provide the introduction & finish to the palate with expressive fruit filling the middle. Expect great fruit intensity and palate weight throughout a lengthy finish.
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.
Each parcel of fruit was kept separate, crushed and left on skins to ferment, between 6-12
days. Two to three open pump-overs per day were used to ensure a full and balanced
tannin profile. The wine completed malolactic fermentation in new American oak (10%) and
seasoned French oak barrels (90%), a total maturation period of 10 months. No fining or
filtration was used in the production of this wine.
