HENRY'S DRIVE DEAD LETTER SHIRAZ 2014 is available to buy in increments of 1
Hailing from Padthaway in South Australia, Dead Letter Office Shiraz offers up classic South Australian punch and depth. Near black in the glass, it's full bodied with bucket loads of dark berries, oak, spice and a lick of earth and mineral. Big, soft and round in the mouth, the substantial tannin gives balance to the lushness of the fruit.
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
“Beautifully rich and aromatic, the gorgeous bouquet shows blackberry, dark plum, cedar and spice characters with attractive mint chocolate complexity. It is ripe, concentrated and plush on the palate, and delivers excellent fruit weight and power, wonderfully supported by velvety texture and supple tannins.
At its best: now to 2024”
4 Stars & 17.5-/20 Raymond Chan, July 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Very dark, near-impenetrable black-hued purple-red colour. This has a firm and intense, well-concentrated nose of ripe blackberry and dark raspberry fruit at the core unfolding black pepper, toasty oak and some reductive earthy and minerally elements. Full-bodied, the palate is softly concentrated with tight and densely bound flavours of ripe blackberries and dark raspberries. The fruit shows a layer of toasty oak and is a little subdued by the reductive mineral notes. The palate has a good core with presence and body, and the tannins supple and balanced by the fruit sweetness. The wine carries to a lingering finish of raspberries, liquorice, pepper and oak. This is a softly concentrated, reserved Shiraz with raspberry and toast flavours and some reductive notes, on a palate with good presence. Match with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes. Shiraz from estate Padthaway vineyards fermented to 14.5% alc., and aged 10 months with 60% French and 40% American oak.
