Henry's Drive Vignerons was founded in 1992 by Kim Longbottom and her late husband Mark in
Padthaway, South Australia. 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 with Shiraz,
Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho on soils that range from
limestone over sandy ridges to rich, red loam.
|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. 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.
