Personalised Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyards Brooks Road Shiraz 2012 14.5% 750ml

Expert Review:

James Halliday-95 Points, The first vintage made by Yangarra from the Hickinbotham Vineyard after its far larger parent company, Jackson Family Estate, purchased it in 2011. Deeply coloured and unashamedly full-bodied, it has layer-upon-layer of black fruits, tannins and the French oak in which it was matured for 18 months; significantly, the decision was to not fine the tannins. Drink By: 2047

The Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard covers a steep cut of country from the ridgetops above the village of Clarendon to the Onkaparinga River in the gorge below. Since its establishment in 1971, the Hickinbotham vineyard has become an integral part of Australia’s wine heritage, supplying fruit to produce many of Australia’s greatest wines. Breathing new life into this historic vineyard, Chris Carpenter and Peter Fraser are forging a new era of Hickinbotham’s prestigious legacy; building upon and honoring the vineyard’s acclaimed record.
