COLOUR: Deep plum red
NOSE: Savoury notes first detected, yet quickly courted by generous cherry liqueur/chocolate aromas. Scrents of dried beef sit alongside a textbook garrigue deconstruction - dried herb/oregano/thyme/lavender. Perplexingly, an exotic emission continues - best guess - copha, cranberry and activated walnut.
PALATE: Black olive; coffee and mocha flavours abound, as do the generous shiraz fruits sourced from the norther viticultural reaches of South Australia. Medium-bodied, with a great core and lovely framework. A succulence is immediately noted - a fruited pomegranate/cranberry/quince paste-induced acidity, balanced with fruit sweetness.

POINTS
The St Henri point of difference is that it's aged in old, large wooden vats. Sourced from throughout South Australia, the 2017 St Henri Shiraz reveals no oak in its rather raw, unrefined notes of bloody beef, mixed berries, black olives and road tar. It's full-bodied and still tannic at this stage, with a bit of coarseness on the finish that hopefully time will soften. While not the best vintage for St Henri, it's a commendable effort that should age well.
