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

Producer: Henry's Drive
SKU: 263
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.

 

Food Matching:

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

93/100
The Wine Advocate
From a cooler climate sector of Padthaway, the 2004 Shiraz Reserve is an elegant, soft, complex effort revealing Southern Rhone-like aromas of garrigue, ground pepper, and spice box interwoven with blackberries, cassis, sweet cherries, and herbal undertones. This wild, rich, heady Shiraz tips the scales at 16% alcohol. This is a provocative and undeniably pleasurable wine.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



90/100
Wine Spectator
Smooth, supple and generous with its red cherry, raspberry and red bell pepper flavors. An aromatic red that keeps singing through the juicy, slightly hot finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Oct 15 2006

Torbreck-The Struie-Shiraz-2004-750mL

When poured, the density and depth of the 2004 Struie is immediately apparent; completely black/purple with an opulent magenta tinge. A floral hit of violets makes way for the more brooding aromas of tar, chocolate, licorice and coffee with a subtle hint of cinnamon and spice.

 

The rich, luscious palate of great concentration envelopes the mouth and silky smooth tannins compliment and complete this elegant blend.

Barbecue, ribs, spicy sausages and smoked brisket.
