In an age instant gratification, the Pillar Box is a stoic reminder of the virtues of patience. The act of writing and sending a letter is matched by the anticipation of the receiver. Their best parcels of Shiraz were selected to create this special wine. Pillar Box Reserve can be enjoyed in its youth, but will reward the patient.

They hand selected some outstanding parcels of Shiraz from the Pillar Box project to create this reserve blend. The colour shows red-black and a scarlet rim, with an attractive mocha, native mint and ripe pomegranate aroma. Tempting cedar, spice and cocoa are incorporated into a complex structure. The fine, rounded silky tannins develop into a luscious, prolonged finish.

Reviews:

"Soft and generous, with a subtle tobacco edge to the dark berry and toasty bread flavors, lingering enticingly. Shiraz. Drink now through 2012. 4,800 cases made. –HS" -Rated 89, Wine Spectator

"The grapes for the 2006 Reserve Shiraz were selected from the best Shiraz parcels used to make Pillar Box Red. They were aged in new oak, 75% French and 25% American. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a classy bouquet of smoke, vanilla, saddle leather, bacon, and blueberry. This leads to a full-bodied, plush, seamless wine with no hard edges to its lengthy finish. It has the stuffing to evolve for 2-3 years but I can think of no reason for delaying gratification. It is a great value." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
