Wine of The Month June 2018
2014 Henry’s Drive Magnus Shiraz
Handcrafting wines from our family vineyards in Padthaway, South Australia, Henry’s Drive Vignerons is named in admiration of the 19th century mail coach that once drove through our property. Magnus Shiraz was the favourite wine of the late Mark Longbottom. With this wine we pay tribute to Mark’s strength, determination and character. The fruit for Magnus Shiraz is sourced from a unique site situated on the hillside within our family vineyards in Padthaway. Ancient red gums stand guard around the perimeter of the vineyard offering protection from the sometimes harsh elements of our winters.
A beautifully balanced wine supported by a complex aroma spectrum of white pepper, lavender and exotic spices, star anise and cardamom.
