Lead Time 5 day lead-time required Why?

Pillar Box by Henry’s Drive Vignerons was founded in 1992 by Kim Longbottom and her late husband Mark in Padthaway, South Australia. Pillar Box is named after the once ubiquitous, Australian red postal box that used to dot the Australian landscape. The Padthaway estate vineyard has different soils that range from red loam to black loam to deep sand over limestone. The winemaking team is headed by Renae Hirsch with the support of Kim Jackson as consulting winemaker. Renae brings over a decade of experience, having held winemaking positions in France, Germany, the United States and Australia. 500 acres are planted to Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho.

Tasting notes
The Sauvignon Blanc lends quintessential lively aromas of zesty citrus, grass and herbs, while the Verdelho adds elements of tropical fruit and texture. The Chardonnay rounds out the blend, adding weight and smoothness to the palate.

Technical notes
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho and Chardonnay, the fruit was sourced exclusively from the family’s vineyards in Padthaway, grown in soils of red loam with underlying limestone and deep sand over limestone.
