This is a new release made by Chris Ringland for the Longbottom family, owners of Henry’s Drive. A fruit driven red. Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Perfumed nose, with aroma of spice, blackcurrant, mulberry and cedar. The palate has weight and lots of ripe primary fruit flavours, spice and blackcurrant are followed by raspberry and liquorice. Soft tannins. Raspberry and liquorice aftertaste.
Cellar 1-2 years (2006-2007)
A fabulous value, this 20,000 case blend, assembled by renowned Barossa winemaker Chris Ringland, is composed of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Shiraz, and 11% Merlot, primarily from young vines. Ringland has rarely worked with such huge quantities, but he kept the wine in tank with a little exposure to American and French oak, bottled it unfined and unfiltered, and finished it with a screw cap. It boasts luscious black currant fruit intermixed with smoke, herbs, and cedar. Richly fruity, opulent, and medium to full-bodied, it is one of the great wine bargains of the world. Consume it over the next 2-3 years.
