Hickinbotham Clarendon Vyd Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale 2015
This is the most homogenized, smoothly-assimilated Cabernet in recent years from Hickinbotham, reminiscent of those made by Stephen Hickinbotham in the early ‘eighties. While its aromas of bergamot and blueberry have yet to lock in and settle, the palate’s already there: fine, fresh and strapping. It’s an elegant, savory wine now, but will smooth out and flesh up to memorable opulence with a decade or two in the cellar.
