Product Details

Tasting Notes

A brilliant Grenache jam-packed with fruit flavours: raspberry, blackberry and plum, mixed with smoke, white pepper and herbal notes.

Rich, full and yet never heavy on the palate, with a neat long finish.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Light to medium red-purple; typical McLaren Vale grenache, with its bounteous red berry fruits complexed by savoury, spicy tannins on the long, medium-bodied palate. Drink by 2016 92 Points

Background

History

The first vineyard was established at Chapel Hill in 1973, although it was not until 1979 that the estate was named after the 1865 ironstone chapel that now serves as the winery’s tasting room. The name has long stood for elegant expressions of McLaren Vale fruit, but since the arrival of CEO Jim Humphrys and winemaker Michael Fragos a few years ago, the quality has risen a further notch or two. Fragos has twice been named “Winemaker of the Year”: by Winestate in 2003 and by the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2007.

Regional info

McLaren Vale is blessed with a cache of old, dry grown bush Grenache vines. The main source of grapes is a vineyard planted in 1926, with a smaller proportion from a parcel planted in 1959. The grape berries from these bush vines are extremely small, with thick skins that are crammed full of concentrated colour and flavour. Each vineyard parcel was hand harvested.
