Winery & Vintage Info

The Hentley Farm The Quintessential Shiraz Cabernet 2018 is a blend of 4 estate blocks, all on the western side of the creek with variances in top soil depth, subsoil type, row orientation, and micro- climate. The top soil is predominately a red clay loam, and the subsoil varies from shattered limestone to salt & pepper siltstone and bluestone at depth. All vines are grown on their own roots.

The fruit was de-stemmed prior to fermentation, during which 2-3 pump overs a day were used to ensure that each wine achieved a full tannin structure. The 60% of the wine was left on skins for 55 days before being basket pressed, settled overnight and racked to a combination of new (35%) and used (65%) barrels where it underwent natural malolactic fermentation. The wines were racked off lees and returned to oak to mature separately for the first 6 months before being blended and returned to oak, a total maturation period of 20 months.

Harvested between 3rd of March to the 4th of March 2018, this vintage sees a blend of 54% Shiraz and 46% Cabernet Sauvignon. Winery Notes
