Penfolds St Henri Shiraz
2009 is an impressive St Henri, more a sleeper than a blockbuster, with a very long future before it. Impressively focused crunchy red berries, plums, blueberries and liquorice define a palate with an undercurrent of gentle dark chocolate. The finish rises to a black fruit and liquorice crescendo, with the savoury tannin definition that defines 2009 carrying its fruit with exceptional persistence and a calm yet confident refinement. Robe is the prominent fruit source here, with strong support from SA’s all stars of the Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, Wrattonbully, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale.
