2007 Henley Shiraz

“Henley 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 each vintage are set aside for Henley.” – Geoff Merrill


Wine Reviews:

97 points- Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

“Wonderfully maturing, this delectable shiraz shows dark fruit richness together with smoked meat, dark chocolate, roasted nut, leather and dark spice characters on the nose, leading to a sumptuous palate that is concentrated and gracefully opulent. Dense, silky and persistent, the wine displays awesome power as well as structure and impeccable balance.5 stars.”

96 points- James Halliday (Halliday Australian Wine Companion)

“Matured for 33 months in French hogsheads, bottled Oct '10. Has soared above the reputation for toughness the vintage has always had. It is positively juicy on the mid-palate with plum, sour cherry and black fruits, the oak and tannins sewn into the fabric of the wine.”
