Winemaker Notes

Almost limitless fruit richness is perfectly off set with natural acidity that renders an almost glycerin like mouth feel. While voluptuous it is completely svelte-like in the mouth and fine speckles of spice dance within the chalky traces. Despite its majesty and seamlessness evident finesse and elegance also coexist.

The array of floral violet and rose petal notes intertwine with black raspberry, dark cherry, boysenberry and cassis. Perfectly composed without any element of over-ripeness, superfluous alcohol or extroversion, with time in the glass interesting hints of pistachio, a whiff of clove and an interesting Sarsparilla and graphite-like element nuance with the fruit and take this to the next level.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: The 2011 Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Syrah is a wine that I would drink a second glass. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright, zesty, and charming. Its aromas and flavors of red fruit purity should pair nicely with a spit-roasted leg of lamb. (Tasted: June 20, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, 2011 Hickinbotham Syrah presents earthy suggestions of forest floor, damp soil and black truffles over notes of black plums and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with expressive earth-laced flavors supported by chewy tannins and lively acid, finishing long. Drink it now to 2025+.

Clarendon Hills Winery Video

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.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style. Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
