Clarendon Hills Grenache Clarendon Old Vines Hickinbotham 2002

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The Pinot Noir-like 2002 Grenache Old Vines Hickinbotham Vineyard is less sexy than the 2003, revealing more mineral and herbs as well as a more structured, harder character. Notes of smoke and earth emerge from this big, tightly-knit Grenache. Give ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Grenache wine from South Australia in Australia. 2002 Clarendon Hills Grenache Old Vines Hickinbotham Vineyard 750ml

A dazzler, brilliant with mulberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit on a lively but polished frame, tinged with cocoa and spice notes, trailing its flavors through the finish like the tail of a comet. Drink now through 2015.

The Pinot Noir-like 2002 Grenache Old Vines Hickinbotham Vineyard is less sexy than the 2003, revealing more mineral and herbs as well as a more structured, harder character. Notes of smoke and earth emerge from this big, tightly-knit Grenache. Give it 2–3 more years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 12–15 years. I do not think it will ever attain the hedonistic heights of the 2003 Hickinbotham.
