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. Supple and refined, this Shiraz reflects the region's temperate climate in its elegance and finesse. Muddled blackberries, white pepper and bergamot aromas and flavors shine, while velvety tannins frame the long finish. Although readily enjoyable, Brooks Road has the structure 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.
