Erin Larkin

Posted 21 August, 2020
Hentley Farm’s Chief Winemaker Andrew Quin has recently spent time over Zoom with Perth-Based Wine Reviewer Erin Larkin. Looking at over eleven wines, Erin has shared a portion of her highlights: – 2017 CLOS OTTO  100% Shiraz Packaged in a heavy bottle, with wax and cork seal.  The label is velvet flocking.  Impactful and showy. Clonal variation:  Planted by a German guy called Otto Kasper – he got cuttings from a friends place in Angaston.  They’re not a selected clone.  Hard clay soil. Winemaking is similar to the Beast.  The Clos Otto…

Wine Advocate

Posted 07 August, 2020
Wine Advocate  Hentley Farm has had the privilege of having the following wines reviewed by Joe Czerwinski, rated on a 100-point scale: 2016 Clos Otto Shiraz - 97RP The 2016 Shiraz Clos Otto is as good a wine as I can recall tasting from Hentley Farm. Boasting tremendous concentration, it somehow manages to harness that into a balanced, nuanced wine that should drink well for a decade and a half. Grace notes of mocha, vanilla and caramel sound like the latest hideous drink from Dunkin, but here it actually adds complexity to the bold…

The Complicated Art of Crafting a Wine Icon

Posted 16 June, 2020
South Australia can lay claim to several wines that have achieved the status of icon in terms of their quality, value and desirability, but just how many stars have to align before a wine can claim icon status? The Adelaide Review 2 June 2020 by David Sly The ancient, gnarled Shiraz vines on Henschke’s four-hectare Hill of Grace vineyard in Barossa’s Eden Valley are so delicate that their grapes can only be picked by hand or the vines’ straggly arms risk breaking. Planted in 1860, they are brittle and produce tiny berries…

Drinking – Angus Hughson

Posted 16 June, 2020
VARIETY IS THE SPICE. This vineyard is full of surprises. One property, one place and such very different wines. This is the story of Hentley Farm in the Barossa Valley’s Seppeltsfield sub-region. It is the story of how, more or less, a single place has the capacity to create stunningly different wines. Also how the position of a creek, subtly different soils and the angle of a hill is enough to completely transform wines from elegant on the one had to dense and bold on the other It is a little…
