Hentley Farm The Beast Shiraz 2012


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Like the fabled character, the Beast is big and bold, yet has a beautiful soft side...Selected from a single block high on the hill, where the soils are shallow and the sunlight is even, you can expect the Beast to exhibit great concentration of flavour and richness, with soft grippy tannins. On the nose the wine has black olive, tapenade, and blackberries with truffle-like earthy aromas. Black fruits persist on the palate; particularly blackberries teeming from the mid palate. Tannin profile is prominent, particularly at the front, but does not detract from the great length.
