Hickinbotham Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Picked up from Langtons for only $30. Typically Clarendon hills volatility but less depth of fruit than the Shirazes. Some lovely Cabernet fine tannin plus almost raisiny tertiary fruit. Lovely drink. — 4 months ago

Hickinbotham Clarendon Grenache 2009

Keeping with our night’s theme of aged Rhône and Rhône-ish, we popped this and OMG. Time has stood still for this wine. Blind I’d probably say 2016. Ink, iodine, kirsch syrup, eucalyptus, salty sandstone. In the mouth it’s huge, but still has a sense of balance, with surprising acidity (not saying it’s high acid, because it’s not, it’s just that it seems higher than one would expect for a wine this large framed) lifting up the rich, long, mouthcoating flavors. A hefty amount of soft tannin still present. Lengthy, clingy finish. — 10 months ago

9.5

The 2001 Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham was near its peak. Really drinking well and an excellent pair with my two day seasoned marinated chicken.

Superb ripe blue fruits, just the right amount of pepper, nice purple flowers and absolute elegant heaven on the palate.

Photos of; Clarendon Hills Vineyard, one the probably 75-100+ year old Gnarly vines you will see frequently from good sites in Barossa & McLaren Vale, Owner & Winemaker Roman Bratasiuk and their branded barrels.
