Tasting Notes and Description

The Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz is an iconic and prestigious wine that stands as a testament to the elegance and sophistication that can be achieved with the Shiraz varietal, particularly when it is allowed to express the unique terroir of South Australia without the influence of new oak. This wine is renowned for its deep, almost opaque color, which sets the stage for a complex and layered tasting experience. The bouquet is rich and inviting, offering an array of dark fruits like blackberry, plum, and mulberry, interwoven with notes of chocolate, licorice, and a subtle hint of eucalyptus, showcasing the wine's complexity and depth. On the palate, the St. Henri Shiraz unfolds with a remarkable smoothness and balance, featuring a full-bodied richness that envelops the mouth. The flavors of dark fruits are beautifully complemented by nuances of spice and a gentle acidity, leading to a long, refined finish that lingers with a memorable elegance.

Produced by Penfolds, one of Australia's oldest and most esteemed wineries, the St. Henri Shiraz is crafted using a traditional approach that eschews the use of new oak barrels. Instead, the wine is matured in large, old oak vats, which allows the characteristics of the grape and the terroir to shine through, resulting in a Shiraz that is both pure and distinctive. Sourced from some of the best vineyards across South Australia, including the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, the St. Henri Shiraz reflects Penfolds' commitment to excellence and innovation in winemaking. This wine pairs splendidly with a wide range of dishes, from robust meat dishes like roasted lamb and beef to mature cheeses, making it a versatile companion for fine dining. Its storied history and exceptional quality also make it a wine that can be appreciated on its own, offering a profound and engaging tasting experience. The Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz is a celebration of winemaking artistry, inviting connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike to explore the depth and richness of Australian Shiraz in its most elegant form.
