94pointsPenfolds 2015 St. Henri Shiraz (South Australia)

Aged for 12 months in over 50-year-old large wooden vats, St. Henri shows refreshing little oak when compared to some of the brand's other premium reds. It's still unmistakably Penfolds, though: rich and polished. The nose is a downright pretty mix of sun-ripened blueberries, mocha, violets, black olives and touches of fresh eucalyptus leaves and Middle Eastern spices. There's power on the palate but elegance too. Silky with an even-handed grip of savory fine tannins, the fruit is ripe and plush and set up for aging. Drink now, with decanter and protein at hand, or cellar through 2029. Christina Pickard
