Tasting Notes

This is the most immediately impressive, seductive, comforting luxury of the 2014 Hickinbothams. It reacts faster to an airing in the decanter, mellowing nicely, but may well outlive the three varietal wines. Not an accurate reflection of either of its component varieties, this is a drink of a different order again, like a variety all its own: something new that grew rather than any varieties old and blended.

Winemakers Note

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. Alan Hickinbotham planted these vines in 1971, inspired by the visionary Edward John Peake who developed a famous vineyard here in the 1860’s. Peake was a winemaker, designer, farmer, painter, miner, Gothic architecture revivalist, railway director and lover of Cabernet and Shiraz. He was the type who gave this fledgeling colony its spirit. We trust this, our best wine, will keep his memory alive.
