Chapel Hill Abacus McLaren Vale Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
An exclusive for Coles stores, Abacus is a logical step up from Parson's nose. Your extra few dollars buys you deeper, more intricately coiled black plum and blackberry fruit, well framed in understated dark chocolate French oak. A vibrant, subtle black pepper and spice undercurrent and a fresh rhubarb tang proclaim the cool 2011 season, though it lacks nothing in fruit concentration and depth. Fine, softly grippy tannins make Abacus a happy choice to unscrew tonight, and it will improve for a few years, too.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Deep purple-crimson; the startling colour (for an '11 wine) is on a par with the curious back label description of the palate as 'ethereal, opulent, chunky'. The wine is, in fact, a pleasing midpoint between those descriptors, with black fruits, a thin coat of French oak, and no shortage of tannins.
