This classic Barossa Shiraz from Henty Farm has more than a dollop of Grenache included. Dark maroon hue, there are notes of plums, warm earth, red currants and dark chocolate. There are fine tannins here and good acidity. The finish is a lingering one, maintaining intensity. A very attractive Barossa Shiraz, good value. For enjoying any time over the next five years, though in good cellars, will last two or three times that.90 pts - Kim Brebach (BWU20)
Confected but regional Barossan red. Plums and a kick of chocolate, it gets a bit jubey through the middle and cardboardy to finish. Plump fruit and easy but a little cheap tasting for this price point. Best drinking: over the next five years.
