It is with great regret that I am selling this wine as i planned to hold on to it for a long time, but I am selling to raise money for charity. ALL proceeds will go to the Little Angels Foundation which is raising money to help the the children at Cherish Exchange Orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya. I will be joining volunteers and venturing over in February. Information on the charity can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/little-angels-foundation NOW......moving on. Up for auction is the much sought after 2010 Penfolds St Henri Shiraz. I have 3 bottles available at $299 each/per bottle. The bottles are in MINT condition and have been well looked after. Please note that the bottles in the picture are the actual bottles in my possession (the bottles come with the white penfolds wrapping paper, i just removed for purpose of photo). I have the wooden box showed in the picture also but that will only be sent if you purchase all 3 bottles. It has been said that the only comparable St Henri Vintages of this quality were 1971 and 1996 so its no wonder this wine sold out Australia wide almost immediately. *** PICK UP WELCOME*** I live in Benowa, 4217 QLD “Comparison? 1996 immediately comes to mind; What did the legendary 1971 St Henri release look like as a four year-old?!” P E T E R G A G O PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER Dont miss your chance to own this exceptional wine and PLEASE if you buy it, hold on to it for longer than i have as this wine is cellar-able until 2055 and will only go up in value! ST.HENRI SHIRAZ 2010 OVERVIEW St Henri is a time-honoured and alternative expression of Shiraz, and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. It was created in the early 1950s (first commercial vintage 1957) and gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood. Proudly, a wine style that hasn’t succumbed to the dictates of fashion or commerce. St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1460 litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. Although a small proportion of Cabernet is sometimes used to improve structure, the focal point for St Henri remains Shiraz. GRAPE VARIETY 100% Shiraz. VINYARD REGION Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Wrattonbully, Clare Valley. WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 14.5%, Acidity: 6.7 g/L, pH: 3.57. MATURATION 12 months in large oak vats. VINTAGE CONDITIONS A consistent theme across South Australia was the healthy and above-average winter rainfall. This not only fuelled strong canopy framework but resulted in welcomed soil water reserves, safeguarding vines across the months that followed. Unswerving from the trend of the 2000s was an earlier budburst, flowering and harvest across Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and the south east. Whilst not without challenges from September hail and strong spring winds, Shiraz experienced relatively even set. A November hot spell and replenishing rain pushed the vines ahead in maturity. December temperatures were cooler than November, offering vines ideal growing conditions through to veraison in early January. Mild and dry ripening conditions were complimented by cool nights, with healthy vines yielding fruit that exhibited optimum flavour, and colour development, varietal typicity and vibrancy. COLOUR Purple rim, black core. NOSE Blackness prevails... black pudding, black shoe polish (and tanned leather), black liquorice, black olive, black jelly-beans? Scents of liqueured cherry, saturated dark plum, beetroot and a cooling humbug peppermint impression. From beneath, a waft of dark paste – quince/mocha/praline/coffee grind... ristretto (double!) PALATE How much space do we have ? A complex/kaleidoscopic flavour mosaic presides. These flavours appear turbo-charged – liqueured fruits, elderberry, wild raspberry, pomegranate, praline, almond. Full-bodied – rich, dark and concentrated, and yet still chewy, fresh and youthful – potently geared/tuned. Excellent length – driven by waves of intense fruits, a well of unbridled fine tannins, and a wash of awakening acidity. PEAK DRINKING Now – 2055. January 2014.
