"Not a field blend (ie from a single vineyard), but that's irrelevant, the wine unified by 9 months maturation in used oak. It has a really attractive juicy freshness to both the bouquet and palate, and is intended for early consumption, and endless discussion by loyal followers of Hentley Farm."
- James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
Region: Barossa Valley
Varieties: 47% Grenache, 12% Malbec, 11% Mataro, 10% Shiraz, 9% Tempranillo, 7% Durif, 3% Nero d’Avola and 2% Zinfandel
Nose: On the nose satsuma plum, raspberry and blueberry aromas provide the light, cardamom seed and dried rosemary the shade
Palate: On the palate bright upfront acid and boot leather create a complex introduction, then red fruits and an attractive creamy texture take over. A soft, medium weighted wine with a level of complexity that you would expect from such a diverse range of varietals.
