Hickinbotham

2019 Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon *

Cabernet Sauvignon grows in ideal conditions on the Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard thanks to the combined influence of elevation, aspect, prevailing winds, weather and ancient soils. The ability to consistently retain expressive and fragrant aromas and obtain deep tannin ripeness with concentrated fresh flavours makes Trueman one of the estate’s most highly regarded wines. Violet, blueberry, purple olive and cedar aromas lead to rich blueberry, blackberry and plum flavours. Tannins are long and layered, delivering exceptional depth of flavour and a long, seamless impression that ages very well.

VINTAGE & WINE NOTES

2019 began with a very dry winter and spring, followed by record-breaking heat and dry conditions throughout the summer. Conditions like these are challenging for shoot growth, however the silver lining is a low risk of vine disease. The warm growing season resulted in a condensed harvest with low yields. The fruit showed great concentration of flavour with marked acidity and freshness. The 2019 Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon possesses aromas of mulberry, Asian spices, tapenade, espresso beans and rose petals. The flavours evolve on the palate, with notes of bittersweet chocolate framed by vibrant acidity that gives way to a luxurious mid-palate and persistent finish.
