1997 Henley Shiraz Recorked


“Henley is a strict barrel selection of our best of vintage McLaren Vale Shiraz and is named in honour of my Grandfather, who passed away at the ripe old age of 102. This wine is the best of the best of our McLaren Vale Shiraz and only a maximum of 10 barrels of the vintage are set aside for Henley.” – Geoff Merrill

Group 4

The 1997 shows an abundance of cassis and vanillin oak with cigar box notes.

Shape 4

The palate is rich and fruity showing liquorice and berry fruit characters and is elegantly structured with a rich full mid-palate and has a firm tannin structure. Great length of flavour and tight finish complete this excellent wine.
