Palate Profile

The Hentley Farm The Quintessential Shiraz Cabernet 2018 is a blend of 4 estate blocks, all on the western side of the creek with variances in top soil depth, subsoil type, row orientation, and micro- climate. The top soil is predominately a red clay loam, and the subsoil varies from shattered limestone to salt & pepper siltstone and bluestone at depth. All vines are grown on their own roots.

The wine has aromas of cassis, balsamic, rosemary, thyme, and mint, with hints of black & white pepper. The palate has soft and elegant tannin, with outstanding length and balanced oak.

Critic Awards

Deep, dark purple/black colour. A bouquet of boysenberry and sweet spices. Raucous notes of blackcurrant, mocha and anise, the texture is sleek and grippy, the tannins are firm, the body of the wine is full with a lingering finish.

This blend is coming back into fashion and it is about time. It is Australia’s great gift to the world of wine and this is a fine example made in the Hentley Farm style, which is bolder than many of the other similar blends that you will find out there.
