Description

Hickinbotham Vineyard is situated on the high elevation hills of Clarendon, a sub-region along the northern edge of McLaren Vale in South Australia. This elegant Grenache mirrors the region's temperate climate with fresh blackberries, white pepper and bergamot aromas and flavors. While readily accessible for drinking now, the velvety texture is framed by chalky, classic tannins to ensure decades of cellaring.

About Hickinbotham

First planted in 1971 to dry-farmed Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, Hickinbotham Vineyard is situated on the high elevation hills of Clarendon, a sub-region along the northern edge of McLaren Vale in South Australia. The vineyard historically produced fruit for many of Australia’s most iconic producers but was not bottled under its own label until 2012. Led by winemakers Christopher Carpenter and Peter Fraser— and viticulturer Michael Lane—Hickinbotham Vineyard continues its nearly 50-year legacy.
