    This brand is...well, dead. Gone burgers. Outta here. Sorry, we're not stocking it any more!

    “Return to sender, address unknown. No such number, no such zone. We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat. I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back.”

    At least Elvis put a return address on there. If he hadn’t chances are it would’ve ended up at the Dead Letter Office, they’re the guys that have the painful job of handling the millions and millions of undeliverable packages and letters each year!

    Produced by Henry’s Drive, whose patch of land in Padthaway, South Australia used to be crossed by a 19th Century mail coach service. Their coach driver was a bloke called Henry, thus the name for “Henry’s Drive” and the reason for all the postal mail related wine labels (you’ll also find their Pillar Box Reserve wines here at The Good Wine Co).

    A full bodied Shiraz with plenty of sweetly ripe fruit flavours and spicy, peppery goodness – one for the old school lovers of a big red!
