Henry's Drive Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia 2000

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Readers looking for a sexy, succulent, Cabernet fruit bomb will enjoy the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon. Made from young vines, this gorgeous, deliciously fruity effort reveals plenty of glycerin, body and depth without a hard edge to be found. It represents pure, hedonistic, cassis fruit presented in a voluptuous, uncomplex, pure style. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years. This personality-filled offering provides enormous fun as well as pleasure.

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 service proprietor in this part of the state was a Mr Henry John Hill, whose 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. Henry's Drive is situated in the Padthaway district of South Australia, around 180 miles south east of Adelaide. It is naturally cooler than the more northerly Barossa Valley or McLaren Vale, but warmer and more consistent than Coonwarra, some 50 miles south, with which it shares a similar, former sea-bed, geology. The property is owned by the Longbottom family, who have been farmers in Padthaway since the 1940s. Their first vintage was in 1998. Read less

Deep ruby. Cool aromas of blueberry, black currants and graphite. Quite concentrated and deep; a lovely, thoroughly ripe version of cool-climate fruit (harvested in May). Dense but fresh and sharply delineated. This has compelling fruit. Finishes with lush tannins and terrific length. An excellent Australian Cabernet!

Blackberry/cassis lovers can get an easy fix with the 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is crammed with fruit, has low acidity, full body, and lusty, concentrated flavors that coat the palate. Already delicious, it should get even better over the next 3-4 years, and last 12-15. This is an undeniably sexy style of Cabernet Sauvignon.
