"The deep ruby/purple-hued 2001 Shiraz St. Henri offers sweet aromas of raspberries and flowers. This accessible, concentrated, medium-bodied, impeccably-balanced Shiraz possesses excellent fruit as well as background earth and wood notes. Consume it over the next 10 years." Best 2005-2015

92 points "This is a St Henri of great colour and depth. It has meaty, spicy, leather and humus complexities, already developing mellowness, plus touches of the prune and anise characters of the '01 Penfolds vintage. Multi-layered flavours, developing nicely but very vibrant in the mouth. A very smart St Henri that deserves the best aged cheeses." Best 2005-2020

92 points " Rob Geddes MW says: ‘Traditional bottled art with grapes as the medium’, oak is in the background. This is a durable red with vibrant intensity and an even structure that you can drink young or wait. A classic blend of shiraz and cabernet from selected South Australian regions and large oak maturation give it a gentle character that makes it many wine industry professionals personal favourite.

Drinking: Now to 20+ years Rating:RRP Value: Good Australian Wine Guide 2005/2006 Jeremy Oliver says: A dark, brooding shiraz whose meaty fragrance of plum jam, raspberries and white pepper suggests a currant-like note of slightly baked fruit. Perhaps lacking sweetness and charm, it's a powerfully flavoured and thickly constructed wine built around a robust spine of firm tannins. Like many 2001 s from South Australia, it lacks genuine length and brightness. Drinking: 2009-2013 Rating:90 Australian Wine Annual 2006 " Best 2010-2014
