"Juicy bouncy Grenache, lush red fruits, sprinkled with white pepper, smooth and easy going but with a pleasing backbone." - 89 points - Peter McCombie MW
From Hentley Farm Esate
In the North Western section of the Barossa Valley, the red clay loam over marl (a friable earthly deposit consisting of clay and limestone) produces the highest quality red wines. These soils provide the perfect balance of nutrient availability and vine stress, producing wines with saturated colour and fruit intensity.
APPEARANCE, AROMA AND TASTING NOTE
Bright red, scented fruits fill the nose with specifics of macerated strawberries and raspberries, secondary characters of fennel flower and liquorice providing the spicy lift. The palate shows great tannin focus through the middle and fleshy red fruit around the sides. Even elements of sweet and savoury and equally pleasing on the palate, this wine also pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes.
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.
Hentley Farm is located among beautiful rolling hills on the banks of Greenock Creek at Seppeltsfield, in the west of the Barossa Valley. This single-estate boutique winery produces excellent wines along with memorable tasting and dining experiences.
