Penfolds St Henri Shiraz 2009 750ml
Cherry red with a magenta rim. A bouquet that initiallyexudes giveaway St Henri cues—praline, fruit pastille, red licorice, violet… Yet there are other aromas linked to variety/vineyard(s)/vintage—initially, Shiraz spices incl. cinnamon, nutmeg. Then a spray of kirsch, campari, bitters, cranberry and radish. With air, time these combine and transform to create a wine that can only be Shiraz, that can only be Penfolds, that can only be… St Henri. Compact and restrained. A medium-bodied wine, offering lightness/silkiness/softness/elegance… albeit in a relative sense, alongside its oaked-indulged Penfolds Shiraz siblings. Granular tannins and acidity contentedly usher an admirable textural demeanour across the front, middle and back-palate spectrum. Cold lamb and white chocolate flavours wrestle good-naturedly with fruits (sour cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry).
