Deep crimson red
NOSE
At once Penfolds, at once and reassuringly an authentic, warmingly ‘old-style’ St Henri. A radiant ‘redness’ – an orb of red-currants, red liquorice and rhubarb. Earthy, gamey – cured meats, glazed ham, cold pan juices…scents charmingly emitted.
PALATE
Solid. Aromatics conveyed/shared to palate – juniper, cinnamon, nutmeg, dry herbs. White milk chocolate, mocha and praline St Henri markers tussled to the fore. Integrated, fine and delicate tannins certainly not intimidated by any brash oak.
Poised and balanced
Winemaker's Comments: Most areas of South Australia were impacted by lower than average rainfall across the winter period. This resulted in early bud break in some areas and ideal stress throughout spring flowering. Healthy and welcome spring rain ensued, merging with a mild summer with just a few short periods of heat. Mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings were observed across the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, allowing for
impressive flavour development without inflated baumés. Typically cooler regions (e.g. Adelaide Hills and maritime Robe) developed evenly and with concentration over a long ripening season. Balanced canopies and crops provided even development throughout veraison across all South Australian regions. Bursts of warmth and dry
conditions continued throughout harvest allowing fruit to be picked in optimal condition and rainfall marked the end of vintage. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions. This, coupled with favourable weather conditions, induced great results for traditional quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.
Blend: Shiraz 97% Cabernet 3% 14.5% alc.vol.
Region: Multi-district blend, South Australia. Significant contributions of Shiraz from Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Robe and Bordertown; cabernet sauvignon from Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. Increasing components of Adelaide Hills fruit in recent vintages.
Cellaring Potential: Now – 2045
