Boxhead winemakers is a collaboration between Hentley Farms winery of Barossa, Australia and their American Importer Vine Street Imports. Their goal is to produce an affordable range of wines from South Australia that reflect local flavors. The wines are hand-crafted at Hentley Farm from grapes sourced from choice vineyard sites across South Australia. From the VS Imports website: “A number of different winemakers were involved in the Boxhead Shiraz winemaking, with responsibilities split by regionality. All parcels were crushed, destemmed and left on skins for approximately 10 days during primary ferment. The parcels were then pressed and kept separate for malolactic fermentation. A portion underwent malolactic fermentation and maturation in new and 1yr old French barriques to add complexity.” Read less

A ripe, juicy red, this shows an underpinning of fine tannins to set off the dark berry and herb flavors. Drink now through 2014.

A lighter style of Cab, best for burgers or pizza. Red currant and cassis with a smidge of smoke on the finish.

A bit of a rebel, this Australian Cab is quite different than your typical California variety. It will remind you of a Shiraz, but it has some significant differences as well. There is a lovely aroma of fresh-baked blueberry pie and a smidgen of clove. Then you take a sip and dark berries burst in your mouth, followed by more Christmas spice and a tart finish of strawberry rhubarb.
