    Winemaker Notes

    The 2006 Reserve Shiraz, made exclusively with fruit from an exceptional single vineyard in Padthaway. The colour is opaque red with a purple hue. The complex nose displays an abundance of violets, rose perfumed talc and dark cocoa. Lively aromas of mint and eucalyptus, fill the headspace. These aromas all evolve in the glass over time continuing to stimulate and impress.

    The powerful palate from the start hits with luscious sweet blackcurrant fruit, leading into the tight elegant structure which enfolds creamy and toasty layers. The long chewy tannins vie with the flavours of caramel, mocha and wood fired oven bread. This unique Shiraz is a stunning and superbly balanced wine.

    Henry's Drive
    During the nineteenth century establishment of the farming and wine industries of southeastern South Australia, horse-drawn coaches provided the only transportation of mail and passengers. The coach drivers reigned supreme on top of their coaches, and won the respect and admiration of their passengers. The coach service proprietor in this part of the state was a certain Mr. Henry John Hill. His operation drove directly through a property owned more recently by three generations of the Longbottom family of Padthaway. Routes were known as Drives, thus the family’s wine business is today known as Henry’s Drive.

    Third generation pastoralists Mark and Kim Longbottom are forging a new family tradition of fine winemaking with brands such as Henry's Drive, Parson's Flat, Dead Letter Office and Pillar Box.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.
