Hentley Farm The Creation Barossa Valley Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Each year winemaker Andrew Quin selects a single block which he feels has something unique to offer; this vintage led to the decision to rack-dry the grapes for 2 weeks prior to crushing and fermentation. The colour is a deep, dense purple-crimson; the palate is concentrated, luscious and velvety. One has the image of a giant umbrella opened above Block G (keeping the rain at bay), the end result this remarkable full-bodied wine, the alcohol lost in the folds of the fruit.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Each year a single block is chosen for its special quality by winemaker Andrew Quin and given particular attention, including (for this wine) 18 months in new French oak. This is exceptionally intense and complex, with the texture obviously influenced by the French oak yet to fully integrate; despite all the activity on the finish, there is an innate finesse to the structure and balance.
