 Hentley Farm Cellar Door

See the Hentley Farm portfolio here.

This relatively new Barossa Valley winery and restaurant has quickly become one of the region’s leaders.

Hentley Farm released its first wines in 2002, although Keith and Alison Hentschke purchased the 60 hectare property in 1997, adding the Clos Otto block in 2004.

 

"...a single-minded focus on producing what is as close as you’re ever going to find in Australia to a grand cru Burgundy or first-growth Bordeaux."
James Halliday

The intervening years were spent renovating and replanting vineyards and meticulously restoring and repurposing a collection of buildings dating from the 1840s to the 1880s.

Hentschke chose the western Barossa location because of his belief that the valley’s best grapes came from the Marananga sub-region. The property offers a wide range of terroirs, of varying aspect and altitude, with soils that yield small crops of naturally-balanced grapes.

Winemaker Andrew Quin says visitors to Hentley Farm - including the winners of the major prize in our 30th anniversary competition - experience a genuine sense of place and a genuine sense of history.

 

The former homestead is now the Cellar Door and the old stables house Hentley Farm’s multi-award-winning restaurant, where much of what is served is grown - or grows wild - on the property.

 

In the same way, unusually for the Barossa - largely a region in which grape-growing and winemaking are separate pursuits - all Hentley Farm’s wines are made on-site from grapes grown on the property.

Andrew Quin promises our four winners a comprehensive tasting including as yet unblended wine components tasted during a vineyard walk.

 

‘You get a better feel for how something like a microclimate works when you’re on the spot’, he says.

 

And then there’s dinner - at least seven courses, with additional snacks and treats, all accompanied by matching Hentley Farm wines. The menu itself is a surprise, although all dietary requirements can be catered for.

"Over the years the wines have gone from very nice to extraordinary, showing more richness and polish. The word for me is presence."
Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

At 16 years ‘old’, Hentley Farm is a relative newcomer. But it has had enormous impact, with the restaurant adding a new dimension to eating out in the Barossa and a range of wines that tend to support Hentschke’s high opinion of Marananga grapes.

 

He has unanimous agreement from the critics, who have showered Hentley Farm wines with glowing reviews and high scores.

 

The Hentley Farm flagship, Clos Otto Shiraz - first vintage 2005 - quickly gained a following on the auction market and entered Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine this year, as soon as it became eligible.
