Aged in a collection of very old and evolved 1460 litres oak vats, the raw St Henri flourishes into a complex fruit forward wine with supple tannins and a whisper of oak, Australian Shiraz unlike any other.

An engaging and compelling drink immediately upon release, St Henri ages magnificently, older bottles can present the most memorable tasting experience. An exclusively Shiraz wine this year, sourced from a cadre of exceptional vineyards in Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. The finished St Henri is treated to a year's maturation in a timeless and enduring collection of large format, fifty year old, well seasoned and auspiciously populated oaken vats.
Deep plum red colour. Vibrant, charcuterie offerings arise, a myriad of cold meats and pan juices, red currant fruits morph into blue characters with air and time, crushed pepper, cinnamon and green olive. An impressive linear structure, tightly bound, with significant length, boysenberry and cranberry red fruits at ease with green olive and green melon. Granular, Gravox tannins, praline, nutmeg and spice, all serve to coax and unravel its St Henri textural tapestry.
