Hentley Farm The Beast Shiraz 2017
Hentley Farm was established in 1997 by Keith and Alison Hentschke, who had a single vision to craft exceptional single estate wines from the Barossa Valley.
Using an old soil map from the 1950’s to strategically locate the best parcels of land, they discovered a mixed farming property set among the rolling hills on the banks of Greenock Creek in Barossa’s west, with remarkable diversity of soil types, and varying aspects and altitudes.
The Hentley Farm The Beast Shiraz 2017 is well-named, a powerful expression of Barossa Shiraz!
Dense and opulent in its mouthfeel, elements of blueberry, spicy vanillin cedar, subtle dark chocolate, fennel, faint earth and black pepper also chime in. Robust yet velvet like tannins and perfectly balanced fresh acidity provide ample structure. Extraordinary power and an epically long finish make this a tour de force in Barossa Shiraz.
