Hentley Farm Clos Otto Shiraz 2015
Opulence, complexity and balance all come to mind when thinking about the Hentley Farm Clos Otto Shiraz 2015
With vines planted by previous owner Otto Kasper using a cutting from an ageing and secret Shiraz clone, and tended to with almost antique machinery and a well-practiced hand, the Clos Otto vineyard consistently yields super low quantities with ultra rich flavours.
Blueberry and blackberry lead this rich and alluring nose with jasmine flower, violets, truffle and star anise playing the supporting act. The palate shows all of that rich and vibrant primary black fruit you expect from the western Barossa combined with complexing elements of liquorice, olive and vanillin. The tannin structure is even and complete throughout, providing layers of support to the flavour profile and outstanding length. This wine combines freshness and vibrancy with richness and intensity, a balance of all things.
