    Winemaker Notes

    The fruit for this wine is 100% Padthaway Shiraz and the average age of the vines is approximately 8 years old. The wine was aged in American oak for 12 months prior to bottling. The yield of the vines was 3 tons per acre and only 2200 dozen were made. This smooth, mouth filling shiraz will leap out of the glass at you with its lifted mixed berry nose, and huge blackcurrant fruit and spice aromas. It abounds with rich fruit and distinctly regional minty Padthaway flavors, and lingers on your taste buds with its long velvety finish.

    Henry's Drive, Australia
    Henry's Drive Proprietor Kim Longbottom Winery Image

    Named after the proprietor of the 19th century mail coach service that once ran through their property, Henry’s Drive Vignerons is the wine operation established by Kim Longbottom and her late husband Mark. During the nineteenth century establishment of the farming and wine industries of south eastern South Australia, only horse drawn coaches provided the transit 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 Henry John Hill. His operation drove directly through a property, owned more recently by the Longbottom family. Today, Kim continues to build the business in honor of Mark; with fine winemaking and brands such as Henry’s Drive, Parson’s Flat, The Trial of John Montford, Dead Letter Office, The Postmistress, The Scarlet Letter, Pillar Box and Morse Code. These wines are testament to Kim and Mark’s dedication to crafting fine

    wines from Padthaway, one of one of Australia’s great wine growing regions.

    Proprietor Kim Longbottom, who hails from New Zealand’s famous wine producing region of Marlborough, has winemaking in her blood. Her late husband, Mark was a third generation pastoralist and had a natural affinity with the land. Together, they shared a passion for viticulture and winemaking—a passion that is central to the business. In 1992, Kim and Mark carefully selected sections of their properties for vine planting. Six years later, a dream was realized with the release of their first wines, coinciding with another life-affirming moment—the birth of their daughter, Margo. Sadly, Mark passed away in 2008. A loyal and honest man with a wry sense of humor, Kim and Margo’s loss was felt far outside his beloved Padthaway.
