2018 HICKINBOTHAM BROOKS ROAD MCLAREN VALE SHIRAZ

$79.99 $79.99

Hickinbotham Vineyard was initially planted in 1971, high in the hills of Clarendon on the northern edge of McLaren Vale, producing fruit for many of the area’s iconic producers, including Penfold’s, Clarendon Hills, and Hardy’s. The vineyard was first bottled under its moniker in 2012 from the oldest parcels on the rolling hillsides that funnel in cool breezes from the coast and higher elevations nearby.

The reputation of Hickinbotham Vineyard far exceeds any simple explanation by continuing an ongoing legacy of over 50 years of producing wines of robust character and deep flavors. Brooks Road Shiraz is named after the road on which the vineyard is located and boasts the textbook style of Clarendon Shiraz with savory spices and ripe black fruits in a luxurious balance.

2018 HICKINBOTHAM BROOKS ROAD MCLAREN VALE SHIRAZ

"From the '71 contour plantings, hand-picked, 50% crushed, 40% destemmed, 10% whole bunch, gentle extraction during 18 days on skins, no pressings used, 6 months on lees, then racked to foudre and puncheons (30% new) for 9 months. This oak use will continue in all releases post '18. Extremely complex and intense, but perfectly balanced red and black fruits, tannins a feature."

"A rich, succulent mix of dark chocolate, spiced plum, wild blackberry and black licorice notes. Showcases both power and elegance, with chai, cigar box, violets and dried sage notes, velvety and generous, on the long, generous finish. Drink now through 2035. 1,900 cases made, 370 cases imported.”

"Fine-grained tannin. Sweet, ripe fruit. Creamy mouthfeel. And while it all feels controlled, it feels luxurious throughout, perfumed, plush, those kind of vibes. There are sweet herb/tobacco-like characters here too and sophisticated, smoky edges. It’s still coming together but the fine spread of tannin, gorgeous flavour and reach through the finish all spell (high) quality."
