WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

Hickinbotham (Clarendon Vineyard) is a new ultra-premium, small batch range produced by Jackson Family Wines (who also own Yangarra). The historic Clarendon vineyard was planted by Alan Hickinbotham in 1971, and quickly established itself as truly unique site, going on to become the source of premium fruit for many illustrious brands over the years, including Clarendon Australis (ongoing), Penfolds Grange and Eileen Hardy.

Winemaking

Grapes were hand-picked from Clarendon’s high country (220 metres). After destemming, the berries were sorted straight into open fermenters. The cold soak was four days, the wines were pumped over daily, and the minimum time on skins was eighteen days. The wine was then basket pressed, combining the resultant free run and light pressings; the heavier pressings were kept separate.

TASTING NOTES

His upland vineyard raises fruit of rare elegance without losing any of its perfumed intensity. Lithe tannins underlie a strap of lively blackberry, and perfect amounts of sinew, flesh and bright acidity guarantee a highly rewarding decade or two.
