Producer: Henry's Drive
SKU: 265

The 2005 Reserve Shiraz, made exclusively with fruit from our exceptional hillside vineyard in Padthaway, is supremely refined and elegant. The complex and intoxicating nose displays an abundance of violet and rose perfumed talc. Lively aromas of mint and eucalyptus, characteristic of a classic Padthaway Shiraz, fill the headspace. These aromas all evolve in the glass over time continuing to stimulate and impress. The seamless full palate from start to finish conquers your senses with luscious ripe blueberry and bramble blackberry fruit. Silky tannins and layers of creamy oak, spice, cedar and mocha truffle complete this stunning and superbly balanced wine.

The 2005 Shiraz Reserve was sourced entirely from estate fruit and was aged in 85% new oak. The wine is a glass-coating purple/black with an alluring perfume of toast, bacon, smoked meat, blueberry, and licorice. Deeper and richer than the 'regular' Shiraz, it also has enough structure to merit cellaring. The wine's finish is long and pure.

Wine Companion
Abundant fruit and oak intermingle, the oak giving an overall impression of sweetness. Crowd pleaser.

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

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.

Kaesler-Old Vine-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Old Vine Shiraz is a wine that will never be overtly fruity. It is best suited to those who prefer a savoury style. We are very happy with this wine and it will be fascinating watching this one age, it should go the distance.

Shirvington-Estate-Shiraz-2003-750mL

This wine will give you all the flavours and nuances you are looking for in a McLaren Vale Shiraz. It has a lifted intense nose with chocolate, licorice, cherries and spice characters. The palate is mouth watering with layers of complexity and length. The fruit flavours are powerful, yet velvety and seamless. It is a delight to drink.
