    It’s all text messages and e-mails these days. But the crew at Henry’s Drive are still flying the flag for the old pen and paper!

    Their patch of land in Padthaway, South Australia used to crossed by the 19th Century mail coach service. Their coach driver was a bloke called Henry (thus the name for “Henry’s Drive”) and Kim Longbottom and her late husband Mark dedicated this label of their wine range to that chap.

    They’ve selected their best parcels to produce this medium to full bodied Cabernet loaded with ripe, black berry fruit. Perfect with roasted meats like lamb or beef or those yummy semi-hard cheeses like cheddar, blue, swiss or gouda.
