Winemaker Notes

A blend of 67% Sauv Blanc, 28% Verdelho and 5% Chardonnay.

The Sauvignon Blanc from the Henry's Drive vineyards was of extremely high quality in 2008 – it greatly contributes to the fresh lively aromas of limes, grapefruit, kiwi fruit, spicy fennel and a touch of grassiness found in the 2008 Pillar Box White. The Verdelho expresses itself through a little pineapple and lychee fruit, as well as textural complexity on the palate, while the Chardonnay impacts on palate weight and the overall smoothness of the wine. The palate displays characteristic Sauvignon Blanc crispness and flinty mineral acidity, an attractive depth of fruit flavor and a persistent finish.

This wine is ideally served at slightly chilled on its own, or as a great accompaniment to soft cheeses, seafood or chicken dishes.

Pillar Box, , Australia
Pillar Box
Named after the proprietor of the 19th century mail coach service which once ran through their property, the Longbottom family has created a new family tradition of winemaking with wines such as: Henry's Drive, Parson's Flat and Pillar Box.

During the nineteenth century establishment of the farming and wine industries of Southeastern 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.

Piedmont

View all wine

A prestigious and distinctive region for red wines in northwestern Italy, Piedmont is responsible for some of the country’s longest-lived, most sought-after wines. Set in the foothills of the Alps, the terrain consists of visually stunning rolling hills. The most prized vines are planted at higher altitudes on the warmer, south-facing slopes where sunlight exposure is maximized. The climate is continental, with cold winters and hot, muggy summers. Despite the rain shadow effect of the Alps, precipitation takes place year-round, and a cooling fog provides moisture that aids in the ripening of grapes.

Easy-going Barbera is the most planted grape in Piedmont, beloved for its trademark high acidity, low tannin, and juicy red fruit. However, the most prized variety is Nebbiolo, named for the region’s omnipresent fog (“nebbia” in Italian). This grape is responsible for the exalted wines of Barbaresco and Barolo, known for their ageability, firm tannins, and hallmark aromas of tar and roses. Nebbiolo wines, despite their pale hue, pack a pleasing punch of flavor and structure, and the best examples, when made in a traditional style, require about a decade’s wait before they become approachable. Barbaresco tends to be more elegant in style while Barolo is more powerful. More affordable and imminently drinkable Nebbiolo can be found in the larger Langhe area as well as Gattinara, Ghemme, and other less-prominent appellations. Dolcetto is Piedmont’s other important red grape, ready to drink as quickly as Barbera but with lower acidity and higher tannin. White wines are less important here but can be high in quality, and include Arneis, Gavi, and sweet, fizzy wines made from Muscat.
