Penfolds St Henri Shiraz 2017

  • Product details

    St Henri is a time-honoured Shiraz that standalone 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, this is one for the cellar - it is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters with age. It is matured in an assortment of old large vats.

  • Tasting notes
    The bouquet has a savoury beginning but quickly incorporates generous cherry liqueur and chocolate aromas. The palate is described by the winemaker as "a masterclass of texture: plush, glossy, seamless – abetted by silky, polished tannins". Black olive coffee and mocha flavours abound as this medium-bodied wine before a acidity balanced with fruit sweetness.
