EPS5: Chief Winemaker Andrew Quin – Knock offs with Nick

Posted 24 June, 2020


2017 The Beauty Shiraz | 2017 The Beast Shiraz

This week, National Brand Ambassador Nicholas Meyer enjoys a ‘knock off’ with Hentley Farm’s Chief Winemaker Andrew Quin.

‘These two Shiraz are the basis of the Hentley Farm story. Grown only a few hundred meters apart, this small shift in terroir results in two substantially different stylistic stories.’ – Andrew Quin Chief Winemaker.

The Beauty, a fitting partner to the Beast, is a wine of elegance…
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.

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.
