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.

93/100
The Wine Advocate
From the same team (growers Kim and Mark Longbottom and winemaker Kim Johnston) that runs Henry’s Drive, this wine is made in a similar style. Produced from 6- to 12-year-old vines, it is a blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% American oak, of which 80% is new. It is an in-your-face, exuberant, flamboyant Aussie red boasting loads of espresso roast, toasty oak, blackberries, cassis, and licorice. Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuous, with oodles of glycerin and depth, this hussy requires drinking during its first 7-8 years of life, although it may last even longer.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167

Wine Companion
Medium to full-bodied; blackberry, earth and dark chocolate fruit on a solid structure of tannins and oak. Should be long-lived.
