Winemaker's Notes:

"Kirsch liqueur in addition to ground pepper and white chocolate aromas jump from the glass of the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2003 Grenache Old Vines Hickinbotham Vineyard. Fruity, heady, and rich, with a stunningly textured mouthfeel, this is knock-out stuff."

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.
