Blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Zinfandel. In the GI of Barossa…Region of Barossa. But then you can drill further to Seppeltsfield and Greenock.
Hentley Farm, The Stray Mongrel, G/S/V, 2015
French and American oak. Forget the preconceived ideas on this one. Sure it’s Barossa, but It’s all raised eyebrows and “Seriously? You asked that question?” There’s a delicious nose with expected plum and red currant fruit, before it side tracks with walnut, ink, blueberry skin and then a twist of the Zin provides herbs/leafy and just enough date/sultana quality. Easy oak with gritty drinking choc ethos. The palate has a mint coolness before chalky tannins take over. Finishes with tart loganberry and pepper.
