Method Matured in 50 year old plus large oak vats for 12 months that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal oak character. Although a small proportion of Cabernet is sometimes used to improve structure, the focal point for St Henri remains Shiraz.
Appearance Opaque inky black core with a very deep dark red black hue.
Nose Perfumed scents of ripe blackberry and liquorice blossom from the glass with dark plum and mocha then merging into vanillin oak, subtlety scorched earth and blackpepper.
Body Full
Palate Rich and concentrated with an opulent mouthfeel held in check by an assertive structure, luscious fruit flavours of blackberries, dark plums and liquorice cascade across the palate with an undercurrent of earthy vanillin cedar and spicy pepper. Dryish finish with a solid yet refined wall of tannins holding everything in place. Outstanding power with a long aftertaste of blackberries, liquorice, dark plums, earthy vanillin cedar and spicy pepper.
