Winery Region:Barossa Valley
Wine Name:St. Henri
Robert Parker Rating:92
RP 92 points: A classic effort, the 2002 Shiraz St. Henri (91% Shiraz & 9% Cabernet Sauvignon) was aged 14 months in old 1,460 liter vats. First introduced in 1953, the St. Henri offering is considered to be a quintessential old Southern Australian-styled red. The 2002 was sourced from the Barossa, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, & the Fleurieu Peninsula. This stunningly rich, distinctive Shiraz offers up scents of Provencal herbs, bay leaves, blackberries, black currants, new saddle leather, & loads of meaty characteristics. Rich, texturally opulent, & soft, this heady offering should drink well for 10-12 years. It is also a very good bargain in the scheme of Penfolds’ pricing.
