Decided to head down under today. Clarendon Hills is a favorite with its dedication to single vineyard terroir wines that rival some of the best in the world. Over a decade and the Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Syrah 2010 is going strong.
Hickinbotham vineyard’s richly compact soils provide depth and its high elevation in the Clarendon sub district allows the vines to ripen later than most, developing that distinct Hickinbotham taste.
Give this bottle some breathing room and it will come alive. Aromas of graphite and blueberry compote eventually lead to a floral perfume. Concentrated and full-bodied, your palate is filled with a rush or red and black fruits. Tannins that can’t be missed, beautiful acidity, and a finish that goes for days.
