Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyards Brooks Road Shiraz 2019 -6pack 14.5% 750ml

Expert Review:

James Halliday -95 Points. A blend of three distinctive blocks on loams, silt and clay. No whole bunch. Gently extracted by wetting the cap and racking/returning. Circa 20 days on skins. 6 months in puncheons. 6 more in foudres and a concrete egg. A corpulent wine, lush and full. Yet there is nothing jammy about it. Eclipsed by its Bordeaux varietal siblings perhaps, but as far as warm-climate shiraz goes, this is at the apex of the qualitative totem pole. Blue fruits, violet, anise, clove and pepper grind. Some salumi, too. But the tannins are this gorgeous wine's opus. Ned Goodwin MW. James Halliday Wine Companion 2022, 13 August, 2021
