Hickinbotham Brooks Road Shiraz 2018 - McLaren Vale
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
Available online only
Sweet blueberry and rich red fruits interlace with notes of clove and menthol.
The palate is expansive but pure finesses with a beautifully balanced acidity leading to a silky finish.
The fruit was hand-picked, partially destemmed (10% whole bunches) and crushed to open top fermenters. Following cold soak, the grapes saw a gentle maceration of plunging and drain and returns during peak fermentation. Drained and pressed after 18 days on skins, the free run went directly to barrel and no pressings were included. Aged 15 months in predominantly 500 litre French oak puncheons (30% new) and a 25 hectolitre round foudre.
