  • NobleRottersSydney - Penfolds & Henschke - Top Shelf Shiraz (Alio's, Surry Hills): [12.5%, cork] {Kim} Opened and poured at table. Unbelievably dark; barely garnet. A far more expressive nose than the Henschke, being all coffee, bitumen, tar, and black fruits. Seems incredibly promising, but the palate can’t deliver. There’s the barest remain of leathery old fruit, and low-level powdery tannins; and structurally it’s sort-of held together, being neither volatile nor astringent, but the palate has just faded away and left just a memory of the wine that was. Sure, it’s drinkable, but there’s no length of flavour or real finish to speak of, to the point where it’s virtually a light-bodied wine; not the ambition of St Henri at all. Past its best.
