Hentley Farm `The Creation` Shiraz 2013 (1x 750ml), Barossa Valley. Cork

The fruit for this wine was sourced from a small patch of vineyard between the winery and the cellar door called D4. With a cracking vertical soil unique to this patch and a North - South orientation this block was planted in 2001 using an old Grange clone and produces one of the most naturally balanced canopies on our property.

The usual deep crimson colour, but from that point on follows its own drum beat; there is a brightness and freshness to the black fruits allied with notes of cedar, spice and dark chocolate. I hesitate to say the word 'elegance' with Hentley Farm, but this comes close.
