Henry's Drive-Parson's Flat-Shiraz Cabernet-2003-1.5L

Producer: Henry's Drive
SKU: 409
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

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.

94/100
The Wine Advocate
This gorgeous effort from vineyards owned by the Longbottom family, is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. It is a big, beefy, opulent red with fabulous creme de cassis-like fruit intermixed with notions of bacon fat, espresso roast, and sweet berries. This voluptuous, fruit-forward effort is a classic example of what Australia does best ... deliver extroverted, super-ripe, lusciously-textured, nearly over-the-top wines that are thrilling to drink. This 2003 should age nicely for 7-8 years.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



90/100
Wine Companion
Very ripe blackberry, prune and blackcurrant; soft tannins; overall sweetness from 15.5% alcohol.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2005



88/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe, dense and chewy, a broad-beamed red with rich cherry, tar and pepper flavors, finishing firm if a bit hot, persisting well.

Kay Brothers Amery-Estate-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Dense black cherry colour and aromas of butter over blackberry and blackcurrant together with pepper, tar and liquorice.

 

The intense fruit dominant characters carry through to the velvety textured palate and combine with flavours of chocolate (mocha), liquorice, coconut, vanilla (American oak), pepper and spice - a red with tremendous mouth feel and great length.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-1.5L

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.
