The Beauty Shiraz 2008
Varietals: Shiraz (co-fermented with Viognier) Single Estate
Tasting note: This wine exhibits great aromatics, showing typical Shiraz aromas of blackberry and licorice combined with underlying floral notes and spicy clove. The palate is true to the Hentley Farm range and wine style, with soft tannins, balance and fruit intensity. Specific flavours mirror those displayed in the aromatic profile.
Review: “Broad and spicy, with a surprisingly open texture that lets the black cherry, smoke and licorice flavors explode over the palate, persisting on the ripe, powerful finish. Drink now through 2018. 450 cases made. HS.” (winespectator.com, Feb. 28, 2011)
