Hentley Farm The Stray Mongrel Grenache Shiraz Zinfandel 2019


Mike DeGaris – Wine Show Chairman
“A bright, cherry spice fruit driven style with good oak nuttiness. Juicy with sweet fruit on the palate, full-flavoured with gritty and savoury tannins.”

Melissa Moore – Wine Show Judge
“Deep in colour, broody and masculine and spiced on the nose. The palate intense with red, black and blue-berried fruits, savoury liquorice, and the varieties blended seamlessly. Big fruit, big oak, lots of tannin grip. Big!”

Andrea Pritzker MW – Wine Show Judge
“Complex bouquet of dried herbs, ripe strawberry and savoury spice. Fresh and lively offering ample ripe strawberry and a long persistent finish.”

Jason Bowyer – Wine Show Judge
“Iodine and sea shell nose and the palate has richness and fruit sweetness with ripe dark cherry fruits. The wine has oak but it’s matched by richer fruit from what would appear to be a lower cropping vineyard showing perfume and violets.”
