Henry's Drive-Reserve-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Producer: Henry's Drive
SKU: 261
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

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.

95/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2003 Shiraz Reserve, which I assume is made from the richest barrels, has all the same characteristics of the regular bottling, with more weight, opulence, and persistence. The 16% alcohol is beautifully concealed by its prodigious concentration. For those who love extroverted personalities of wild and crazy Australian reds.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



91/100
Wine Spectator
Big, muscular style has ultraripe cherry and dusky spice flavors, finishing with flavors of rare meat and pepper. A brawny wine that's also a bit hot.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 30 2005



90/100
Wine Companion
Powerful blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate fruit; fractionally sharp tannins; will evolve.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2004

Two Hands-Lily's Garden-Shiraz-2004-750mL

Wow, This one scares me! Amazingly dense black in colour, the bouquet is expressive and filled with plums, mocha, aniseed, coffee, Asian spices and melted chocolate with secondary notes of clove and tobacco.

 

The mouthfeel is dense, lush and sweet with an oozy density and a layered fruit driven palate, this Lily’s is more like the 2002.

Two Hands-Bella's Garden-Shiraz-2005-750mL

Dense purple red almost black.  A powerful nose of ripe plums and succulent blackberries laced with a hint of cedar spice. Wow!  Bella's as always shows amazing depth and power whilst maintaining an elegant fruit purity.  Matured in all French oak, the majority being seasoned barrels, allowing the fruit to do the talking with only the merest hint of cedar oak to support the ripe plum and mulberry flavours.  Finely woven tannins produce a long linear wine forming a race track like structure along the palate.  Great length and persistency of flavour.

Two Hands-Lily's Garden-Shiraz-2005-750mL

Typical of our McLaren Vale style, the 2005 shows delicious distinctive mocha, chocolate and sweet plum characters. Backed by a lush, plush mouthfeel and oodles of juicy ripe fruit laced with an underlying black pepper spice and a silky tight tannin structure. But don’t be deceived this is a serious wine with serious aspirations!
