Henry's Drive `The Scarlet Letter` Sparkling Shiraz NV (12 x 750mL), SA.

Description:

All technology is eventually appropriated for the most basic of human needs-Love, lust and sin. The invention of the postal service was no different. How many couplings found their start, and end, via an impassioned letter? Named in part after this phenomenon and Nathaniel Hawthorn’s magnum opus of the same name, The Scarlet Letter is a hedonistic sparkling version of Padthaway Shiraz. The first sip will make you lust for a second, the

second bubbles forward feelings of guilt. The third- a warm embrace. From there, redemption is assured

Winery Profile

"One of Ten Dark Horses’ by James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2009

Named after the proprietor of the 19th century mail coach service that once ran through their property, Henry’s Drive Vignerons is the wine operation established by Kim Longbottom and her late husband Mark. During the nineteenth century establishment of the farming and wine industries of south eastern South Australia, only horse drawn coaches provided the transit of mail and passengers. The coach drivers reigned supreme on top of their coaches and won the respect and admiration of their passengers. The coach service proprietor in this part of the state was a certain Henry John Hill. His operation drove directly through a property, owned more recently by the Longbottom family.

Today, Kim continues to build the business in honour of Mark; with fine winemaking and brands such as Henry’s Drive, Parson’s Flat, The Trial of John Montford, Dead Letter Office, The Postmistress, The Scarlet Letter, Pillar Box and Morse Code. These wines are testament to Kim and Mark’s dedication to crafting fine wines from Padthaway, one of Australia’s great wine growing regions.
