Henri achieves its finesse and integration through aging in old, 1,460-liter oak vats, where the wine develops structure without taking on overt wood notes. That structure is furthered by a small amount of cabernet (nine percent of the blend in 2008). The wine layers red raspberry with darker fruit and black, earthen tannins, creating a tailored impression of elegance. Accessible now after some time in a decanter, this is built to drink around ten years from the vintage and to age significantly longer."

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.
