Hentley Farm Black Beauty Sparkling Shiraz

Achieving colour, depth and intensity while retaining finesse and softness in sparkling shiraz is no easy balancing act, and Hentley Farm has nailed it here. It’s at once luscious and deep in its black fruit and liquorice profile and at the same time creamy in its fine bead and silky in its fine-grained tannin structure, backed by well-gauged dark chocolate oak. It’s got depth and breadth, but never wavers in focus and finesse, finishing long and linear.
