Cherry red with a magenta rim. Initially exudes giveaway St Henri cues - praline, fruit pastille, red liquorice and violet. Shiraz spices including cinnamon and nutmeg followed by a spray of kirsch, campari, bitters and cranberry.
With air and time, these combine and transform to create a wine that can only be Shiraz. Compact and restrained. A medium-bodied wine, offering lightness, silkiness, softness and elegance alongside its oaked-indulged Penfolds Shiraz siblings. Granular tannins and acidity contentedly usher an admirable textural demeanour across the front, middle and back-palate spectrum.
Cold lamb and white chocolate flavours wrestle good-naturedly with fruits such as sour cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry.
