Winemaker Notes

Plush, fleshy and mouth filling—showcasing a cleverly woven texture and deceptive fruit weight. Nectarine and blood plum fruits courted by the largesse of big, ripe and round tannins. Maturation precursors already awoken, although yet to ascend/unfurl—fresh wallet leather, pan scrapings. Long and persistent. Polished.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Supple, with nubby tannins around a gorgeous core of currant and pomegranate, the flavors floating easily into the long, expressive finish, hinting at green tea and guava as the finish rolls on serenely. Shows intensity without density, coming together seamlessly. Drink now through 2025.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 St Henri Shiraz is slated for release on May 1, 2013. It is a little closed at the moment though reveals earthy aromas of warm berries, some mulberries and Chinese dried plums over notes of meat, black olive, coffee and tree bark. Richly concentrated and complex with layered, savory flavors, it is structured by firm, grainy tannins and is finishing long. It needs time to develop further. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+.
Rating: 93+

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Because St. Henri is aged exclusively in large, mostly neutral oak vessels, it often requires more time to come around than Shiraz aged in barrel. The 2009 is tight and reticent on the nose, while showing hints of boysenberry, black olive and roasted meat on the palate. Full bodied, rich and firm in structure, with a long, amply textured finish, it needs a few years in the cellar, and should last at least through 2030.

JH 93
Australian Wine Companion

There is a warmth of fruit in the '09 St Henri that offers plush mulberry, spice, blackberry confiture and tar on the bouquet; the palate is generous on entry, warm and inviting, with a lively backbone of acidity cleaning up the tail of fine-grained tannins and charry oak flavours. Not destined for the longest life of a St Henri, but long enough.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Developed in the 1950's in parallel with Grange, St. Henri is a selection of Penfolds' best shiraz aged in large-format, older oak. This is a traditional style that emphasizes earthiness, its tannins chewy, its flavors taking on the meaty side of cherries. Supple and savory, this is built to age a decade or more.

Penfolds
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon.
