Pillar Box Red Reserve
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.
