90/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2004 Grenache is a blend of primarily Grenache with small amounts of Mourvedre, Shiraz, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fashioned from 35 and 60-year-old Grenache vines, it boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as an explosive nose of kirsch liqueur, licorice, pepper, and spice box. This rich, opulent, hedonistic Grenache is a total turn-on.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



88/100
Wine Spectator
Soft and velvety, offering a nice core of ripe berry, red cherry and dusky spice flavors, finishing gently and with some persistence.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: 2005

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-750mL

2003 vintage:

Winter started with heavy rains, which tapered off resulting in below average rainfalls and a successful budburst in early spring. Flowering and set occurred in November, promoting uniform berry development and bunch numbers were on average for the season. Veraison for Shiraz and Cabernet started in late January with the older vines producing lighter crops. The height of summer saw 65mm of rainfall in the last week of February requiring swift viticultural practices to prevent the onset of disease and fungus. Our 2003 Barossa Shiraz displayed great colour and depth of flavour. Yields overall were below the long-term average but the grapes were of good quality and the resultant wines display terrific potential. 

Wine description:

Bright purple plum colour. Glossy red fruits and spiced plum cake on the nose with a hint of vanilla spice. The palate shows swathes of rich generous fruit, ripe blackberry intermingled with soft cedary spice. A fine coating of gentle tannins washes over the palate with a long and persistent finish to end.

Henry's Drive-Reserve-Shiraz-2004-750mL

Full-throttle Shiraz are fashioned from vineyards owned by the Longbottom family. This is an unabashed, flamboyant, Aussie wine that is loaded with fruit, fragrance, glycerin, and intensity. This is the type of wine that Eurocentric wine tasters and condescending elitists tend to dismiss, but it is a fascinating effort the likes of which are made nowhere else in the world. There is certainly no shortage of flavor, and if you like your wines exuberant, flamboyant, and over-sized, this wine fills the tab, and then some.

 

Food Matching:

Grilled or roast beef, bigbeefy stews, venison, Cheddar cheese.

Henry's Drive-Parson's Flat-Shiraz Cabernet-2004-750mL

Parson’s Flat plays homage to Padthaway’s early settlers with its classic Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet. The mail coaches of the nineteenth century not only carried mail, but also had an important function in connecting isolated country communities. It was not uncommon for the district Parson to use the coach system to visit and commune with his parish.
