Aromen von Pralinen und Milchschokolade. Dieser Jahrgang erinnert an frisch gepresste Randen und Ingwer und getrocknete Gewürze wie Lorbeerblätter oder Salbei. Weich und saftig am Gaumen präsentiert der St. Henri eine kräftige Textur. Aromen von Nektarine und Pflaume zeigen sich neben reifen und runden Tanninen. Der St. Henri ist bereits im Reifestadium, obwohl noch viel Potential zur Entfaltung vorhanden ist. Lange und ausdauernd im Abgang.

Pre-Arrival Item - Will Ship Mid-May - Penfolds St Henri Shiraz is a highly successful and alternative expression of Shiraz and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is a perfumed, stylish, supremely elegant wine, with features so striking they need no enhancement or highlighting with oak. This fruit driven Shiraz is propelled by skin and seed tannins alone.

Traditional multi-regional blend sourced from seven districts in South Australia. Opaque in color with a magenta-hued robe. An elegant nose of spice and dark pepper slowly open to reveal notes of black cherry and milk chocolate. This vintage of St. Henri is almost Bordeaux-like in its presence with a lovely compact profile emphasizing fresh dark cherry flavors that are reined in by fresh acidity. The tight and focused finish is supported by a small amount of slightly gravelly tannins. 2007 is one of South Australia s most difficult vintages for this decade and this successful release shows the typicity of the vintage with a compact focused palate. Tasted in magnum. Chuck Hayward.


Winemaker's Notes:

"A seriously impressive wine, the 2007 Penfolds Shiraz St. Henri, 100% Shiraz that‟s matured in 50+ year old, larger format vats (no new oak or smaller barrel at all) for 12 months, delivers a deep, layered profile with thick plum and currant fruits, meat juice, licorice, roast coffee, and smoky, savory notes that come out more with air. Medium to full bodied on the palate and beautifully balanced, with a rich, seamless, and full texture, rock solid balance, and ripe, finely polished tannin that carries the finish. There‟s real depth and length here, and while there more than enough fruit to allow it to drink superbly now, it has the structure to keep it evolving positively for 12-15+ years...94" RR 6/11 "The colour is bright and deep, the bouquet with black fruits, some meaty aromas and potent spice and licorice components. In the mouth, the flavours are overwhelmingly of black fruits, with echoes of the spice and licorice of the bouquet, and a hint of tobacco. The ripe, but fine, tannins attest to the skills of the winemaking team...95" Australian Wine Companion 08/11
