Penfolds Red in Class of Own St. Henri Shiraz 2006

Chris Shanahan, The Canberra Times

The aroma is fragrant, spicy and immediately recognisable as shiraz, but taking on a winey complexity. There’s a sweet core of elegant fruit. But the structure is taut and grippy – the fine, slightly austere tannins no doubt contributed by the cabernet in blend. This is a very fine, elegant, beautiful wine. It should be at its best from about 15 years’ age. Some vintages have recently fetched higher price than Grange.

Grape varieties: 89 per cent shiraz, 11 per cent cabernet sauvignon
Region: Barossa, McLaren Vale and Limestone Coast
Maturation: 15 months in 1460lt oak vats, more than 50 years old
Price: $80 - $90
