This is the most finely-structured and elegant of our three vintages of Hickinbotham Vineyard Shiraz. It's another step in our determined effort to get the best from this distinguished upland site. Each of our three Shiraz vintages is a little further from the traditional high-alcohol, full-bodied McLaren Vale Shiraz from the lower, warmer country in the south of the region.

Wine SpectatorThe fleshy plum and licorice notes are generous, with a plump, plush body, cinnamon-scented spice accents and touches of black tea on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,940 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis robust red manages to find elegance amidst power. The nose starts out quiet, needing some swirling to open up and show plush blue and red fruit, floral notes and baking spice. The juicy palate is sandy-textured from superfine tannins, yet there's enough heft and structure to take this well into the future, from 2028 and beyond.
