Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Hickinbotham Cabernet Sauvignon highlights the quality of the fruit that is produced from the forty-six year old vines, planted on a soil of rock and shale. This incredibly dark, richly colored wine exhibits a spectacular nose of blackberry jam and licorice. Rich full bodied flavors of chocolate, black berries, earth, spice and vanilla.

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.
