| 92 points, James Suckling: " n recent years, Hentley Farm have consistently occupied the top tier of Barossa wine producers offering the classic regional characters that we have grown to love with a contemporary twist. Deep red/purple in the glass showing aromas of opulent blackberries and plum fruits with a floral twist, no doubt stemming from the co-fermentation of viognier with the dominant variety of shiraz in the blend. Hints of violets, jasmine and purple flowers, apricot kernel, five-spice powder, rosewater, liquorice and dark chocolate appear in a heady mix of aromas. Great density and freshness on the palate, and once again with blackberries and a floral edge supported by defined, granitic tannins plunging through the wine � not to mention a seam of bright, stony acidity. A fruit-driven style. Drink in 2018." Tasted: 27-Jan-2015
