Henry's Drive Shiraz Dead Letter Office 2009 750ml

Henry's Drive Shiraz Dead Letter Office

A firm and focused red that offers aromas of toasted spice, plums and red berry fruit, underpinned by hints of fresh floral and spearmint. The juicy core of berry and plum fruit blends with hints of leather, toasted spices and lavender on the soft and balanced finish.

Shiraz was sourced from Longbottom Vineyards in Padthaway (62%), planted on red loamy soil over limestone and Henry’s Drive’s estate vineyard in McLaren Vale (38%), planted on yellow and red clay loam, and black clay over lime. Fermented on its skins for 5-7 days with pumping over four times a day, the wine was pressed and then aged for 13-16 months in neutral and new oak hogsheads and barriques – American (80%), French (15%) and Eastern European (5%). The wines were vinified separately and blended just before bottling.
