Henty Estate Shiraz 2005

Henty Estate Shiraz 2005

Intense blackcurrant, spice, black plums, and with time some peppery dryness. Blackcurrants and plums on the palate too, counterpointed by some cassia bark and white pepper. A pleasant balance of juicy ripe fruit and dry spices, combined with soft tannins and some lovely supporting oak. On the downside, and it is a minor point, just a touch of bitterness on the finish. A good value Shiraz: it will set you back $22 at the cellar door, and it is even cheaper by the dozen.
