Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Alan Hickinbotham established the vineyard bearing his name in 1971 when he planted dry-grown cabernet sauvignon and shiraz in contoured rows on the sloping site. He was a very successful builder; this is his first venture into wine but his father, Alan Robb Hickinbotham, had a long and distinguished career, which included co-founding the oenology diploma at Roseworthy in ’36. In 2012, Clarendon and the stately sandstone house on the property were purchased by Jackson Family Wines; it is run as a separate business from Yangarra Estate Vineyard, with different winemaking teams and wines. The vineyards are undergoing biodynamic conversion. Exports to all major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY
