2016 Hickinbotham
The Peake Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz

McLaren Vale, Australia
2016 Hickinbotham The Peak Cabernet-Shiraz Blend

A gastronomic luxury of rare style and intensity, this beautiful wine is fine, supple and utterly satisfying; evoking notes of blackberry, ripe fig, and Arabic coffee. It retains an unlikely softness given its serious long-term potential; its silky elegance is deceptive: there's enough form in this bottle to carry it for decades.
