St Henri 1992

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

Moderately concentrated but restrained palate with cherry, salted liquorice, dark chocolate, dried fruit flavours, lacy al dente, slightly leafy tannins and underlying acidity. Drink now. Finishes firm and crisp.
