Beauty and the Beast is a fairytale yes, but it is also the names given to two unique Shiraz wines made by Hentley Farm. The Beast leaps out of the bottle all big and bold but actually has a softer side with plenty of fruit and softer tannins. It's an impressive wine, a certain crowd pleaser and a fabulous gift idea.
On the nose, there is big, jammy fruit; black cherry, blackberry, strawberry, and a little cassis… On the palate it hits you with a controlled explosion of the above mentioned fruits, i.e. fruit bomb. However, the fruit unfolds in a pleasant way that doesn’t hit you all at once. The mouthfeel is silky, THE Tannins are WELL balanced AND The finish lingers. This is a wonderfully made Shiraz!!
NAMED AFTER ALFRED'S GRANDMOTHER, THIS IS A MEDIUM BODIED WINE - WARM AND HUMBLE JUST LIKE ITS NAMESAKE – AROMA’S OF LIGHTLY SPICED PLUMS AND CHERRIES LEAD TO HINTS OF CHOCOLATE, LEATHER AND LOVELY SAVOURY CHARACTERS. THE PALATE IS GENEROUS AND FULL FLAVOURED WITH GOOD LENGTH, SOFT TANNINS AND FLAVOURS OF PLUMS AND CHERRIES. A LOVELY EASY RED DRINK!!
