Overview

The 2010 Chapel Hill Cabernet Sauvignon perfectly articulates the regional expression and charm of McLaren Vale. The close proximity of McLaren Vale to the Gulf of St Vincent and the resultant cooling afternoon sea breezes ensure that the grapes do not ripen too hastily and also facilitates the development of optimum levels of flavour, colour and tannin.

Expert Reviews

Deep colour, and loaded with sweet black fruits, tar and a little licorice; full-bodied and showing warmth on the palate, the chewy tannins demand a little protein for maximum enjoyment.

Rating 90 - Drink by 2020 - Ben Edwards, James Halliday's Australian Wine Companioin (MAR/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The subsequent wine exudes an evocative array of flavours. Brooding mulberry, aniseed and beetroot flavours all mingle harmoniously in the wine. The layered flavour profile is underpinned by the graceful and seamless integration with the

trademark Cabernet Sauvignon “dusty” fine grained tannin structure.
