HENTLEY FARM SHIRAZ THE BEAUTY 2013 750ml
"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. Complex perfume of apricot, passionfruit, quince, jasmine, plum and red berries – strawberry and raspberry. These aromas are emulated on the palate and supported by soft even tannins with a full mid palate and great length."
"Wet Viognier skins where added at the crusher at a rate of 3%. After an initial temperature spike 1/3 of the wine was sent to oak for fermentation off skins. The balance was chilled and returned over the skins where a minimal pump-over regime (1-2/day) was employed to ensure the softness of palate for which The Beauty is known. It was then basket pressed out to a combination of new (40%) and old French barrels where it underwent natural malolactic fermentation. A total of 18 months in oak."
