“Another vintage that classically reaffirms St Henri DNA – it is not
a Bin, nor RWT nor Grange-like. A unique shiraz proposition
that harks back to the late-1800’s. Quality that doesn’t date.”
“Recommend to decant this vintage – no ifs or buts!
It will maketh the wine and reward your effort. Please.”
PETER GAGO
PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER
OVERVIEW 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.

CONDITIONS
Above-average winter and early spring rainfall
offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil
moisture profiles for the growing season. Late
spring and summer were dry and warm with
significant heat records being set. Warm weather
prevailed during summer and throughout
veraison, allowing grapes to develop evenly and
with good intensity. The warm conditions came
to an abrupt halt in mid-February with significant
rainfall that allowed for a long and slow ripening
of the fruit in very good conditions. This ensured
balanced flavour development, fruit exhibiting a
brightness endowed with crisp acid retention and
impressive fruit quality.
COLOUR Deep garnet
NOSE Lifted, racy. Rhône-ish at first, South Australian
upon sitting.
Bountiful aromatics ascend – initially redcurrant,
cranberry, Christmas cake mix, and then the
liberation of citrus (lime peel), fennel and olive.
Middle Eastern spices also present – sweet, not
savoury (incl. cinnamon, nutmeg). And, not
unexpected, something not present - oak!
PALATE Svelte. Nevertheless, propels assertive tannins
that build – sheeted/layered in configuration.
To please all tastes - the sweet – zabaglione,
custard, raw chocolate (cocoa); and the savoury
– (bone) marrow, star anise.
Lingers, and certainly leaves a most appealing
‘residual’ impression for quite some time after
ingestion.
