St Henri is a time-honoured and alternative expression of shiraz, and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual amongst high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. Released for the first time by Penfolds in the early 1950s (first commercial vintage 1957), it gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood.

Proudly, a wine style that hasn’t succumbed to the dictates of fashion or commerce.

St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters with age.

It is matured in an assortment of old large vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. Although a small proportion of cabernet may sneak into the blend, the focal point for St Henri remains shiraz.

  • When to drink

    2022 - 2052. Drinking well now, but will improve with time.

  • Nose

    Savoury notes first detected, yet quickly courted by generous cherry liqueur/chocolate aromas.
    Scents of dried beef sit alongside a textbook garrigue deconstruction – dried herb/oregano/thyme/lavender.

  • Palate

    A masterclass of texture: plush, glossy, seamless – abetted by silky, polished tannins. One taster quipped: “millennial tannins”!
    Black olive; coffee and mocha flavours abound, as do the generous shiraz fruits sourced from the northern viticultural reaches of South Australia.
    Medium-bodied, with a great core and lovely framework – yet what is sipped fills the mouth so effortlessly.
