The Reserve Shiraz is the signature wine of Henry's Drive Vignerons and encompasses our approach to winemaking at its finest. Only the most exceptional parcels of fruit are hand selected from our family vineyard. Made with minimal intervention, this wine is a true expression of the vineyard, variety, and terroir of Padthaway.

The Wine Advocate
"A dramatic wine, rich and spicy, almost Port-like in flavor, with exotic spices, bitter chocolate and black pepper notes mingling with ripe currant and plum flavors as they persist on a big finish."
