Penfolds St. Henri 2007

Low in Stock
WA:93
  • Why you should try: Unusual winemaking among high quality Australia red wines that St. Henri does not rely on any new oak as it is aged in old, large vats
  • Estate Background: Penfolds was founded in 1844 by English physician Christopher Rawson Penfold and his wife Mary Penfold. It is Australia's oldest and most influential winery which brought Australia's wines to the global spotlight. Christopher believed in the medicinal benefits wine and the couple planned to make a wine tonic to treat anaemia. Both the winery and clinic businesses were flourishing. Mary began to take up the more responsibility of the estate and eventually running the winery after Christopher's death in 1870. Today, Penfolds operates more than 1,000 hectares of vineyards.
  • Blend: 100% Shiraz, matured for 12 months in large (1460 litre) 50+ year old seasoned wine vats

Wine Advocate: 93

"Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2007 St Henri Shiraz is a little closed at this stage, revealing subtle earthy notes over crushed blackberries, pencil lead, toast, game, smoky bacon and tree bark. Medium bodied, elegantly fruited and still very tight-knit, the palate offers beautiful purity structured with firm chewy tannins and very crisp acid that should see it through a long life." (Oct 2006)

 

IWC: 93
"Opaque ruby. Rich cherry and dark berry compote aromas are complicated by dried rose and smoky Indian spices. Dark fruit flavors display impressive concentration and an almost oily texture but are in no way heavy. Becomes chewier on the finish, which emphatically echoes the dark fruit flavors and leaves behind notes of candied licorice and bitter chocolate. This bottling has an admirable track record for aging." (Oct 2006)
