The Wine Advocate
The 2003 Shiraz (100% Shiraz from a 90-year-old Vine Vale vineyard) was cropped at .5 tons of fruit per acre, and was aged 32 months in old French oak. It is a magnificent effort boasting tremendous ripeness as well as abundant blueberry and creme de cassis notes intermixed with flowers, graphite, and crushed rocks. With amazing concentration, purity, and richness, but no heaviness (the alcohol is only 14.5%), and a finish that lasts well past a minute, it is accessible now, but should age effortlessly for two decades or more.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



92/100
Wine Companion
Very youthful colour; massively proportioned, with lots of flavour and plenty of depth; very clean and quite fruit-sweet, with a mere hint of toastiness in the background; long and rich.

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.

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.

Henry's Drive-Reserve-Shiraz-2005-750mL

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.
