Wine information: Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Vineyard Syrah is a single vineyard wine and part of Clarendon Hills’ ‘Grand Cru’ classification. Clarendon Hills was founded in 1990 when Roman Bratasiuk embarked on a truly remarkable wine making journey. His vision: to create single vineyard wines equal to anything in the world. Quite simply. Working with old, dry-grown vines and performing every step of the process by hand, Roman sought to redefine the Australian fine wine landscape by solely conveying the imprint a vineyard forges on the varietal expression. The Hickinbotham family are instrumental players in Australian wine history, and Alan Hickinbotham bought this estate in 1960. Clarendon Hills sources wines from this stately vineyard to produce a single site Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and old-vine Grenache – all detailed by the Hickinbotham family name. Richly compact soils provide depth and a signature across the varietal spectrum. Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Vineyard Syrah os a masculine and often tightly-wound expression of Syrah often dominated by harder-edged and powerful characters. Recessed and concentrated, this wine has a mineral under-fabric that accentuates the boldness of its understatement.

Reviews: "Spicy, ripe red fruits on the nose. Very forward. The palate is quite concentrated with lots of spicy, liquoricey fruit. Bold and quite tannic with plenty of wood. Very good/excellent" 90 Points, Jamie Goode, www.wineanorak.com
