Henry's Drive

Producing wines in the Padthaway region of South Australia's Fleurieu zone, Henry's Drive takes full advantage of the natural gifts provided by the close proximity of the Southern Ocean. Elegantly built wines but with plenty of Australian character is what one gets with these bottles. They age nicely but are very forward and balanced in their youth.

The 2005 Shiraz Reserve was sourced entirely from estate fruit and was aged in 85% new oak. The wine is a glass-coating purple/black with an alluring perfume of toast, bacon, smoked meat, blueberry, and liquorice. Deeper and richer than the “regular” Shiraz, it also has enough structure to merit 4-6 years of cellaring. The wine’s finish is long and pure.||Henry’s Drive is owned by Kim and Mark Longbottom with Kim Jackson as winemaker. This task was previously handled by Sparky and Sarah Marquis but in this, the second vintage after their departure, Henry’s Drive has not missed a beat. Wine Advocate. October, 2007

Wine Companion

Abundant fruit and oak intermingle, the oak giving an overall impression of sweetness. Crowd pleaser.

Other details

This is the last bottle of the 2005 Henry's Drive Shiraz from a mixed case bought on BFW. All were delicious and would make any Shiraz fan happy. This bottle has an excellent level, with a slightly dusty label. Lack of space warrants sale.
