The purple-colored 2005 Parson’s Flat Shiraz (73%)-Cabernet Sauvignon (27%) was barrel-fermented and aged for 16-18 months in mostly American oak, 60% new. It offers up a fragrant bouquet of cedar, spice box, pepper, espresso, wild blueberry, and blackberry. Medium to full-bodied, it exhibits some complexity, layers of savory black fruits, and a lengthy finish. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now.

If you can pass through Coonawarra without noticing very much, you can pass through Padthaway without noticing anything at all.” Be that as it may, this is where the Longbottoms added grape growing to their other farming interests and began Henry’s Drive Vignerons. It quickly became clear that high quality grapes could be grown in Padthaway (they became the foundation of the Marquis-Philips line) and, subsequently, The Henry’s Drive, Parson’s Flat, and Pillar Box labels have gained significant traction in the USA market over the last ten years thanks to their superb price to quality ratio.
