Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard 'The Nest' McLaren Vale Cabernet Franc 2018

Special Price $72.00 Regular Price $75.00
You could probably cellar this Cab Franc for 20 to 30 years such is its structure and power. Aromas and flavours are of black tea, raspberries, dried herbs and cedary oak. The fruit is rich, dense and velvety. A cracker.

Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard was planted in 1971 and up until the Jackson Family purchased it in 2012 provided fruit for a slew of super premium producers. Parcels found their way into Penfold’s Grange, Eileen Hardy, Clarendon Hill’s Astralis and plenty more besides. That all changed in 2012 when the Jackson Family (think Yangarra estate) purchased the vineyard and kept the glorious fruit for themselves. Given the illustrious wines this fruit had been going into, it should be no surprise that the Hickinbotham wines are picking up some pretty amazing accolades. James Halliday has just given the Merlot 97, Cabernet Franc 96, Cabernet 97, Shiraz 98 and the Cabernet Shiraz a staggering 99 points.

Chicken doesn’t get much better than this BBQ Korean chicken. So much flavour going on. Spice, acidity, freshness and some great smokey BBQ flavours too.
