Hentley Farm The Beauty Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018
The 2018 Hentley Farm The Beauty, is a wine of elegance, grown on the coolest block on the property and co-fermented with a touch of Viognier. The Beauty displays complex lifted aromatics, along with the softness and subtlety befitting a wine of this name.
"Wet skins of viognier (3%) co-fermented, destemmed, closed fermentation for 6 days, matured in French oak (35% new) for 20 months. In archetypal Hentley Farm mode. Deeply layered and polished black fruits, tannins and just the right amount of new oak." 95 points, James Halliday – Australian Wine Companion
"Bold, deep, bright purple colour. Fresh, plummy, primal fruit aromas, with hints of star anise and graphite. Some plum jam hints. Full-bodied, big and warming due to alcohol, which adds a little heat to the finish.",93/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review
