Set on the red-brown soils of the western Barossa Valley, Hentley Farm founders Keith and Alison Hentschke acquired the 150 acre vineyard and mixed farming property in the 1990s. Following extensive research to find out where the best red wine grapes in the Barossa Valley were being produced, their studies led them towards the rich red soils of the Seppeltsfield area. Keith used an old soil map from the 1950s to strategically locate the best parcels of land and after a number of years acquired Hentley Farm.
Taken from two separate Barossa Valley sites; a Western Barossa block with Easterly aspects and soil composition of red clay loam over limestone, and a 70-year-old Williamstown block comprising deep silty loam over yellow clay.
Like all great Grenache, this wine has a pretty nose with a high degree of aromatic detail, particularly macerated strawberries, black peppercorn, star anise and toffee apple. The palate shows great tannin focus through the middle palate, and fleshy red fruit around the sides. Overall savoury flavours lead the way, sweet fruit providing the drinkability undertone, easy to drink and delightful to pair with a variety of dishes.
