Penfolds St Henri Shiraz 2016

Description

St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, arthy, 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.

Instant delivery, demands attention. Engulfs palate … ever so deftly. No intimidation.

A pure-fruited retronasal continuum from the first sniff to the post-ingestion back-palate. No gaps – call it saturation or density/compaction sans ‘bigness’ – apportioned correctly.

Red and dark-fruited, a compote of fresh prune and quince. 2016 + tempered shiraz + House Style + Penfolds = an assured St Henri collectable.
