Penfolds St Henri CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz South Australia
Outstanding Langtons Classification. Originally labelled as claret and sold at the same price as Grange, St Henri was more often than not, the preferred choice of Shiraz for the nascent Australian market. Gaining a new lease on life during the 1990s as the quality and style continued to make converts, St Henri remains the nation's most accessible icon Shiraz. Aged in a collection of very old and evolved 1460 litres oak vats, the raw St Henri flourishes into a complex fruit forward wine with supple tannins and a whisper of oak, Australian Shiraz unlike any other.

Inaugurally released in 1957, St Henri is a time honoured and alternative expression of Shiraz, an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual among eminent Australian Shiraz wines as it does not rely on any new oak. An engaging and compelling drink immediately upon release, St Henri ages magnificently, older bottles can present the most memorable tasting experience. An exclusively Shiraz wine this year, sourced from a cadre of exceptional vineyards in Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. The finished St Henri is treated to a year's maturation in a timeless and enduring collection of large format, fifty year old, well seasoned and auspiciously populated oaken vats.
Deep plum red colour. Vibrant, charcuterie offerings arise, a myriad of cold meats and pan juices, red currant fruits morph into blue characters with air and time, crushed pepper, cinnamon and green olive. An impressive linear structure, tightly bound, with significant length, boysenberry and cranberry red fruits at ease with green olive and green melon. Granular, Gravox tannins, praline, nutmeg and spice, all serve to coax and unravel its St Henri textural tapestry.
