St Henri 1995

St Henri is an enigma in modern Australia in that it is a richly flavoured Shiraz wine that does not rely on the flavour support of new oak. Rather than the typical use of small, often new barriques and hogsheads to mature Shiraz, St Henri is matured mostly in large, 2000 litre oak casks that impart almost no wood characters. 
Taste Description
Medium-deep crimson. Fresh black cherry, plum, mocha, liquorice aromas with herbal mint notes. Complex and well-concentrated with dense plummy, cassis, mocha, tobacco flavours and fine chalky tannins. Finishes sappy firm but long, sweet and savoury. Drink now but will keep for a while.
