  • Goedhuis, October 2018

    A multi-regional blend of 93% Shiraz and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Back in the 1950s before the creation of Grange the winemaking team viewed this blend as the Penfolds brand’s ultimate Australian cuvée. Whilst it might sit below the Grange in terms of fame, in quality it is an absolute stunner. Beautiful aromas of fresh damsons and Victoria plums. It has a wonderfully silky texture and the fruit has an appealing sweetness without excess. A very warming style with hints of Moroccan spice. The finish is harmonious and the silky tannic sensation at the end makes for additional complexity.

  • Wine Advocate, October 2018, Score: 93

    Black olive and plum notes form the base of the 2015 Shiraz St Henri, a wine that sees no new oak (it's aged entirely in old foudres). This vintage includes 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, which gives a bit of lift and a leafy, floral note on the nose. It's medium to full-bodied, with a firm, structured feel and ample tannins to ensure 20-plus years of longevity. Drink 2020-2035

  • Decanter, September 2018, Score: 94

    St Henri Shiraz is an atypical Penfolds icon, an echo of the so-called ‘Hidden Granges’ when Max Schubert was denied new oak by the Penfolds board. Matured for 12 months in large old oak vats, it’s a cross-regional blend of 93% Shiraz and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale, Robe, The Peninsulas, Wrattonbully, Adelaide Hills and Mt Benson. Its youthfully fine crème de mûre perfume is complemented by spicy cardamom and cinnamon, notes of game, fruitcake, cherry and cassis. It has good concentration and seamless textural finesse, supported by a fine backbone of fresh acidity and a savoury finish with great ageing potential. It would suit darker game such as grouse, or even ostrich. Drink 2022 - 2042

  • Jancis Robinson, September 2018, Score: 17.5

    Dark purple. Intense. Very rich and spicy. Lots of sinew and structure. Again, a sudden end. But good leathery fruit and polish. Drink 2021-2035

Penfolds was founded by a young English doctor who migrated to Australia a century and a half ago. Dr Penfold maintained a firm belief in the medicinal value of wine (don't we all?).

Penfolds was founded by a young English doctor who migrated to Australia a century and a half ago. Dr Penfold maintained a firm belief in the medicinal value of wine (don't we all?). Before he left Britain he had obtained vine cuttings from the south of France and these were planted around the site of the modest stone cottage, called the Grange after his wife Mary's home in England, at Magill on the outskirts of Adelaide in 1845.Up until the Second World War, the company mainly produced fortified wines and brandy, with only a small amount of table wine. Jeffrey Penfold Hyland, however, decided to change Penfolds' direction, increasing the company's production of table wine, which at the end ofthe war still accounted for only 3 per cent of Penfolds' total production.In 1950, Jeffrey Penfold Hyland convinced the company to focus more on table wine, reflecting the emerging shift of consumer tastes. The task of effecting this change was given to winemaker, Max Schubert, who had joined the company as a teenage messenger boy in the early 1930s. In 1951, following a visit to Europe, Schubert produced the first experimental vintage of Grange Hermitage, a Shiraz based wine inspired by the great, long-lived red wines of France. Fifty years later, Grange remains a flag bearer for the industry and the wine which not only fundamentally altered the course of Australian red winemaking, but also led the way in establishing the quality image for Australian wine internationally.Read less
