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.
Technical notes
(Note from 2008) Sourced from two different growing areas Padthaway (83%) and Mt. Benson (17%). The cool climate of Mt. Benson lends the herbal and slightly leafy element to the wine. The grapes were macerated for five days and were separately fermented by type of juice and by parcel. The wine aged for 12 months, of which 30% matured in oak (90% French and 10% American oak). A small fraction of the best Cabernet parcels was drawn off and blended to make the Pillar Box Reserve Cabernet.
