2017 Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard ''Trueman'' Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1502835 96 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Hand-picked, berry-sorted and extracted regally with the thrice rack and return culture applied to alleviate reduction while maximising lees to juice contact across 15 months in Bordeaux wood, new and 1yo. The result is a full-bodied cabernet of currant, brush, sage, leaf, bouquet garni and olive, bound to a strong tannic weave, all needing time to unravel. And unravel it will. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

94 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Deep red/purple colour, with intense violet and blackberry, blackcurrant and blueberry aromas, the fruit leading the charge and oak very much in the background. It's superbly elegant and refined, with taut structure and clean lines. Fine-grained, keenly balanced tannins and fresh acidity. An even more elegant vintage of this wine than usual. Fine, persistent aftertaste. - Huon Hooke (The Real Review) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon is pretty classically made and styled, with notes of cassis, cedar and vanilla on the nose. Befitting the cooler vintage, it's a bit more medium-bodied and streamlined than some other years, with ample acidity and firm tannins on the crisp, tangy finish. It's a structural wine, rather than a generous, plush one, that's for sure, but it should come good in a few years' time. Inner quote mark (7/2020)
