At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty..

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

Penfolds St Henri 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. St Henri stands out as one of the most internationally successful Australian icon wines, year in and year out, it serves to uphold the integrity and regal nature of the Penfolds brand. Always an expression of the finest South Australian Shiraz without the distraction of oak, a minor component of Cabernet, can in some years be assembled into the final wine, contributing structure, firmer tannins and complexity.
St. Henri is significantly matured in old, 1460 litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. The focal point for St. Henri is about the collation of the finest Shiraz available to Penfolds, vinified to express the qualities of outstanding fruit. Conceived by John Davoren in the early 1950s alongside development of the mighty Grange, St Henri is a later incarnation of a wine grown to a vineyard adjacent to Penfolds called Auldana Cellars, originally vinified by Frenchman Leon Edmund Mazure who is also accredited as the creator of sparkling burgundy. St Henri is treated to a year's maturation in a well seasoned collection of larger format oak.
Splendid depth of colour. Lifted and complex, aromas of spice, raspberry and blackberry fruits, developing characters of praline, anise and mocha with a swirl of the glass. Tight palate, rounded, integrated, yet obvious tannins, primary flavours of black fruits, blackberry conserve, dark plum, liquorice and spice are evident. A youthful, lively wine with no oak influence, a wine of the vintage, demanding larger glassware and an energetic swirl.
