SKU: 6433
An impressive linear structure – tightly bound, with significant length. Boysenberry and cranberry red fruits at ease with green olive and green melon. Granular (Gravox-like) tannins, praline, nutmeg and other spices coax and unravel its St Henri textural tapestry. Shiraz, adorned differently!

Product Description

    Details

    St Henri is a time-honoured and alternative expression of Shiraz, and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. Released for the first time by Penfolds in the early 1950s (first commercial vintage 1957), it gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood. Proudly, a wine style that hasn’t succumbed to the dictates of fashion or commerce. St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1,460 litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. Although a small proportion of Cabernet is sometimes used to improve structure, the focal point for St Henri remains Shiraz. This 2011 vintage is 100% Shiraz. An impressive linear structure – tightly bound, with significant length. Boysenberry and cranberry red fruits at ease with green olive and green melon. Granular (Gravox-like) tannins, praline, nutmeg and other spices coax and unravel its St Henri textural tapestry. Shiraz, adorned differently!
