| 95 pts, James Suckling: "Made from fruit selected from a single block on the western ridge of the Barossa Valey, Hentley Farm "The Beast" is a robustly structured shiraz showing great fruit density and impressive drive across the palate. Dense black plum and berry fruits come to the fore supported by hints of liquorice, black olives, macerated summer berries, kirsch, dark chocolate, well-judged spicy oak and purple-flower notes. Impressive heft and flow across the palate with excellent fruit purity, ripe melt-in-the-mouth tannins and a sense of freshness throughout its length – all considering the richness of the fruit on display. An impressive wine from one of the region's current stars. Drink in 2020." (27-Jan-2015)
