Hentley Farm Clos Otto Shiraz

Be the first to review this product

Blueberry and blackberry lead this rich and alluring nose with jasmine flower, violets, truffle and star anise playing the supporting act. The palate shows all of that rich and vibrant primary black fruit you expect from the western Barossa combined with complexing elements of liquorice, olive and vanillin. The tannin structure is even and complete throughout, providing layers of support to the flavour profile and outstanding length. This wine combines freshness and vibrancy with richness and intensity, a balance of all things. 2014 vintage - 95 James Halliday

2014 – Solid rainfall through June and July filled the soil profile thus providing a great start to the growing season. This was followed by a dry and warmer than average spring, combined with unusually high winds at flowering. These conditions continued on through summer until the middle of February when a significant rainfall event signalled the end of summer and a return to mild days. This last minute reprieve from the heat was critical for the vintage, resulting in slowed ripening and therefore increased opportunity for flavour development. One of the most unique Barossa vintages in recent history, and in my opinion will prove to be one of Hentley Farm’s best.
