2015 Hentley Farm Barossa Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Medium-bodied dark fruits overlay fine tannins, oak and a bit of licorice. Very satisfying and smooth, and very much contrary to the big, bruising, jammy Shiraz stereotype. Great for pairing with sturdy fish, white meats, and vegetable dishes.
$25.19 as part of a mixed case.
Temporarily out, back in August.
"A lifted wine showing aromatics of dark cherry, black currant, Raspberry, mocha and vanillin. The palate shows traditional Hentley Farm characters with soft succulent tannins that are supported by dark fruits and balanced acidity. Notes of cherry and licorice add complexity while the balance of fruit intensity and oak through the back provide great length."
"Each parcel of fruit was kept separate, crushed and left on skins to ferment, with cap management including a combination of hand plunging and pump overs. The wine completed secondary fermentation in new (15%) and old (85%) French oak barrels, and matured for 20 months. No fining or filtration was used in the production of this wine. 14.5% alc."

$18.9990 WA Australians know Tahbilk produces unique wines. The reds are comparatively reserved and a tad hard edged at the beginning of their lives but really reward the patient, and yes even a wine at this price is cellar worthy. This Shiraz shows us medium-bodied purple fruits, nice tannins, and more development potential, although we certainly wouldn't refuse to imbibe freely right away.
