Henry's Drive-Parson's Flat-Shiraz Cabernet-2005-750mL

Producer: Henry's Drive
SKU: 405
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

2005 Parson’s Flat has a dense ripe cherry colour with a purple hue. The nose displays a concentrated array of mixed forest berries, smoky cigar box, spicy pepper, clove, caramel and mocha. An initial sweet concentrated explosion of luscious blackberry on the palate leads to savoury spice, coffee bean and liquorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is still evident, contributing some attractive leafy and spearmint/peppermint flavours. Firm and granular tannins leave the mouth with a persistent coating. A finely tuned blend that allows both varieties to express themselves.

90/100
Wine Spectator
Big, round and generous, with lots of red fruit and spicy oak competing for attention, opening up a bit on the fine-textured finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Oct 15 2008

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.

d'Arenberg-The Laughing Magpie-Shiraz Viognier-2002-750mL

Chester Osborn, the remarkable person behind this enormous array of both impeccably high quality and value-priced wines, deserves considerable accolades for what he is able to achieve at all price ranges. If you love Australian wines, d’Arenberg is a winery to seek out as these offerings all possess abundant soul as well as character. In short, the accolades that proprietor/winemaker Chester Osborn receives not only from The Wine Advocate, but virtually everybody in the wine world, are all well deserved.

Shirvington-Estate-Shiraz-2005-1.5L

The 2005 vintage is now showing deep red with a purple rim. The wine in its infancy still shows a lifted and perfumed nose with traces of red plum, blackcurrant and cracked red peppercorn.

 

The palate with all its freshness and luxurious, velvety tannins is so rich and concentrated, yet so reserved. It is a satisfying mixture of chocolate, aniseed and smoky oak. The copious layers are incredibly tightly bound and need time and careful cellaring to unleash the full potential of this wine.
