Winemaker's Notes:

Most tannic of its Hickinbotham and Clarendon vineyard counterparts. Interestingly the spice of ginger and white pepper seen in the Clarendon is also apparent on the widely structured and tannic palate. Expressions of violet, dried basil and blueberries intertwine within the finely grained extract

About Clarendon Hills:

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
