IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz possesses a unique stature, an emblematic story and enduring quality in the canon of fine Australian wine. This multi-vineyard, multi-regional blend is batch fermented and then aged in old 1460-litre vats allowing minimal oak influence. Fresh mulberry, blueberry, dark chocolate and liquorice aromas and flavours, mid-palate richness, fruit sweetness and fine chocolatey tannin structure typify the St. Henri style.

Penfolds St. Henri is a counterpoint to Penfolds Grange. St. Henri is a highly successful, alternative expression of Shiraz. It is unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on new oak. It was created in the mid-1950s (first commercial vintage 1957) and gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood. Penfolds St. Henri is rich and plush when young and gains soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1460-litre vats that allow the wine to develop, but imparting no oak character. The focal point for St. Henri is shiraz.
