    Winemaker's Notes:

    Fabulous notes of melted licorice, smoke, asphalt, creme de cassis and roasted jus de viande, this wine is fullbodied, dense yet remarkably elegant, well balanced. Hickinbotham Shiraz Vineyard planted in 1965 on hard clay and ironstone soil again facing north into the Onkaparinga Valley.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Notions of melted tar, blackberries, liquid minerals, and charcoal emerge from the inky/purple-colored 2003 Syrah Hickinbotham Vineyard. Revealing a meaty richness along with great concentration, length, purity, and definition, it is a tour de force in winemaking. This amazing Syrah should age effortlessly for two decades.
