Description

The legendary alter ego to Grange, the blend is 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet… St. Henri is aged in 50 + year old 1,460-litre wooden vats as opposed to Grange’s 100% use of new oak barrels. It was always intended by its founding Penfolds winemaker John Davoren, to be a more elegant expression of the Shiraz grape through adopting more traditional winemaking methods. A veritable multi-district basket of fruit is sourced across South Australia from the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Robe and Bordertown with increasing components coming from Adelaide Hills in recent vintages. Some vines are up to 90 years old.

Smells

Enticing floral (rose) notes hover over dark fruit, spices and tarry aromas.

Tastes

Very warmly fruited spicy laden entry onto the palate delivered within very engaging, almost caressing tannin. Its creamy, juicy contrast is divine and further imbued with anise, baking spice, soy, chocolate and tarry complexities. Although very refined it does not lack power and finishes with a juicy, refreshing coolness. A Stunning St. Henri, likely to age 40-50 years in professional storage. Enjoy with rare roast beef.
