    Description

    Chapel Hill have some of the best vineyards in the McLaren Vale, planted around an old church that was built in 1865. Winemaker Michael Fragos has twice been named Winemaker of the Year: by Winestate in 2003 and by the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2007.

    This is pure expression of cabernet: Leafy black fruits with and cedar spice, with alluring aromas of liquorice and mulberry. The wonderfully structured palate is complex with persistent fine grain tannins.

    Rated 91/100 by The Wine Front.

    Variety Description

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climate. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential.
