Clarendon Hills Shiraz Hickinbotham 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Planted in the Onkaparinga Valley in the Clarendon Hills area, this wine is always very peppery and spicy with nuances of Leather and minerals. A most individual wine - always very deeply coloured and with abundant tannin.

Big, rich and juicy, with plum, blueberry and a range of sweet spices. The fine tannins wrap around the generous mouthful of flavors, which linger powerfully. A touch of coffee adds interest, and the finish just doesn't quit. Best from 2010 through 2... Wine Spectator.

The 2005 Syrah Hickinbotham Vineyard is opaque purple-colored with aromas of crushed rocks, toasty oak, tar, licorice, bacon, blueberry, and blackberry. Muscular and large in scale, it will profit from a decade of cellaring and drink well through 203... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

...Vibrant, primary aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice, eucalyptus and pungent spices. Juicy, succulent and very intensely flavored; a penetrating, precise, vibrant wine with terrific verve...
