The 3 Best Penfold Wines for Any Wine Lover | Man of Many
Penfolds St Henri Shiraz 2017
Though it bears a Shiraz label, St Henri is a time-honoured alternative expression that proudly stands tall as a wine style that can’t be dictated by what’s fashionable. St Henri Shiraz 2017 features a blend of fruit hand-selected from across South Australia’s best vineyards to produce a drop that then spent 12 months maturing in 50-year-old wine casks before bottling.
The Penfolds mantra is ‘we always go where the fruit grows best and where it best suits style,’ and nowhere suits a glass or two of sublime Chardy quite like the beach, the bar or backyard on a hot day.
The 2020 release of Bin 389 celebrates the 60th anniversary of this particular expression which went a long way to cementing Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the richness of Shiraz.
