Chris Hill Reserve McLaren Vale GSM 2015 (12 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

The combination of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro is for me, the perfect blend. It has innumerable combinations. For this Reserve wine I’ve selected a solid backbone of ripe McLaren Flat Grenache from 100 year old vines and added small amounts of spicy Shiraz and Mataro to give a full flavoured yet elegant blend that highlights subtle oak complexity and lovely scented spice.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The appearance is medium to deep red with lively cherry hues and solid core of deep garnet red. The rim of violet is a reminder of ripe Mataro berries.

Aroma

The nose is full of vibrant fresh plum, currant and cranberry with varietal spice and fragrant lavender overtones. Shiraz adds a hint of eucalypt and Mataro is sweet and rich with earthy spices delivering complexity and sophistication.

Palate

The palate is full and generous with raspberry and rhubarb adding to the fruit spectrum. The mid palate is solid and round with fleshy Shiraz tannins that add a savoury kick followed by earthy dried herbs. The intensity of flavour builds towards a dry, rounded finish with sweet oak and spice.

Food Matching

This is a wine for tender char grilled lamb chops marinated in olive oil and rosemary Combine with crispy green beans, golden baked potato and a rich garlic butter dressing.

Cellaring Potential

This is an outstanding example of this traditional blend and will reward careful cellaring for 5 or more years.
