Henry's Drive Shiraz Australia 2006

Member Review by Lucha Vino:

Dark purple in color with a nose of dark berry and black fruits with notes of mineral, leather and chalk. The palate is deep and lush with black currant, chalk and some light hints of cocoa that linger on the finish.

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

Lively aromas of mint and eucalyptus mark this wine as a classic Padthaway Shiraz. In the mouth it's silky, with blackberry and blueberry flavors leading to touches of spice and cedar. Food & Wine Magazine. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2006 Henry's Drive Shiraz 750ml
