"Warm, ripe, spicy Cabernet; jammy, powerful, no-holds-barred, quite lush and generous, with a taut finish." - 93 points - Peter McCombie MW 

From Hentley Farm Esate

The Cabernet grapes were harvested early from a well shaded canopy to ensure retention of classic Cabernet leaf and plush herbal characters, and fermentation temperatures were kept cool to further aid this varietal definition. Malolactic fermentation in seasoned oak and a total maturation period of 10 months. No fining or filtration.

Dark blueberry and blackberry aromatics mingle with a slight mint lift. The palate is a classic example of Barossa Cabernet with density, rich fruit and grippy tannins throughout.

A single estate-focused James Halliday 5 Star Winery

Hentley Farm is a single estate focused winery. The 100 acres of fruit bearing vines are planted over a diverse landscape, offering unique flavour profiles, textures and complexities. The first wines weren’t released from the property until 2002, thereafter the estate was extended with the purchase of the neighbouring Clos Otto block in 2004.

While the Hentschke family first settled in the Barossa Valley in 1842 and remained there for many generations, Hentley Farm founder Keith Hentschke grew up on a family property which included a small vineyard at Lameroo in South Australia about 250km away. After studying Agricultural Science and Wine Marketing at Roseworthy College, Keith graduated with the prestigious Gramp Hardy Smith Memorial Prize for the college’s most outstanding student.

Keith’s extensive experience within the wine and agricultural industry is the foundation of his belief that careful vineyard selection is the key to producing high quality wines. Extensive research to find out where the best red wine grapes in the Barossa Valley were being produced led Keith and his wife Alison towards the rich red soils generally overlying limestone of the Seppeltsfield/Marananga area in the North Western section of the Barossa Valley.

The Hentschke’s then used an old soil map produced in the 1950s to pinpoint the perfect parcels of land which led to the acquisition of the 150 acre derelict vineyard and mixed farming property on the banks of Greenock Creek, Seppeltsfield in 1997. The derelict vines were past being retrievable and subsequently extensive planting took place in 1999 with a focus on minimising variation within each block but maximising variation between blocks. This approach led to the planting of five varieties, Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Viognier and Zinfandel across many small blocks with significant variation in topography, clones, sub soils and vine structures.
