With triple 99/100, the legendary alter ego to Grange, the 2019 St Henri is sure to sell out! 100% Shiraz and 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, McLaren Vale, Port Lincoln, Robe, Padthaway, Clare Valley and the Adelaide Hills. Some vines are up to 90 years old.
Enticing floral (rose) notes hover over dark fruit, spices and tarry aromas.
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.
