| This blend of three diverse grape varieties from single estates produces an equally diverse and complex and flavour profile, with savoury aromatics of earth and spice combined with fruit aromatics of strawberries, raspberries, confection and currants. The palate replicates the nose, with dry savoury tannins, Grenache fruits of strawberries and raspberries, and a mid-palate fruit sweetness evident of the 6% Zinfandel addition to this blend.
The addition of Zinfandel to the traditional blend of Grenache and Shiraz is unique to Hentley Farm... Grown on the coolest block on the property and co-fermented with a touch of Viognier, the Beauty displays complex lifted aromatics, along with the softness and subtlety befitting a wine of this name.
