Why do we love this wine?

Meet The General. An idea, an art form, and the very essence of the Barossa craft. The General is form and function. It’s something to marvel at, while eating dinner with friends. A bottle to prize, but one that’s never beyond opening.

The Wine

Decadent plum and cherry jam swagger with a chocolate and raisin edge. There’s a nice dash of oak, both new and old, lending structure. Broad-shouldered tannins enhance an already powerful presence. It’s big. But it’s contained too, waiting to pounce. Even after a few hours in a decanter, it’s a little secretive. Sexy but secretive; layered and alluring. Drink it now for hard-hitting precision, or let it age, and revel in softer, nuanced maturity. It’s everything a premium Barossa shiraz should be. Unabashedly seductive. 


Made by Hentley Farm Wines

Over the past decade with Andrew Quin as winemaker, Keith Hentschke and Hentley Farm wines have gone from strength to strength, cementing a reputation as one of the absolute highest quality boutique wineries in Australia. The wines are all about elegance, finesse and structure, naturally with that Barossa signature of fruit richness, at the core. If there’s one thing that binds everything they do, it’s their attitude towards making everything to an incredibly high standard. 

Hentley Farm are the only Barossa-dedicated winery (out of 160 in total) to have won the Halliday Winery of the Year award, which they did in 2015. And, in 2018’s Halliday Wine Companion, Hentley Farm had more wines at 96 points and above than any other winery in Australia! 

We’ve swooned over many of their wines here at the ’fo, and couldn’t have been more excited to collaborate on The General. The excitement was justified. We can’t get enough of this!


Making wine is an art form. Whether you use Tassie pinot pointillism or bold Barossan brushstrokes, there’s scope for making something truly moving. When discussing the brief with Hentley Farm, this was a concept that united us all. We wanted to make a wine that was beautiful but functional. It’s not made for the mantelpiece, to gather dust and be forgotten. Cellar it happily, but know that this is destined for the dinner table. 

This is art to enjoy, and to bring joy to all.
