About

The Peake is the most elite composite blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Hickinbotham Clarendon vineyard in McLaren Vale.

The Shiraz is made by Charlie Seppelt, the Cabernet by American Cabernet specialist Chris Carpenter. They combine the best, most luxurious components of each season’s haul into this, their premier red wine.

It is a formidable yet supple beast that James Halliday noted was “A classic Australian blend of exceptional quality, destined to outlive most who taste it.” The 2014 vintage is superb receiving 96 points from Mr. Halliday and 95 points from Mike Bennie.

A beautiful example of this unique Australian red wine style, one that will reward the patient for many years to come.

What It Tastes Like

“One of the stars of our recent regional tasting (GW). Serious, brooding bouquet of red and black berries, briar, clove and cinnamon wood as subtle backdrop, bitter dark chocolate, just a whiff of Aussie bush character. Beauty. Medium weight, glides gloriously and evenly across the palate, a quiet lake of dark fruit, spice, wood, swirls of graphite-like tannins. It’s superb. Shuts you up.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
