Chapel Hill has crafted one of the great McLaren Vale cabernets of the modern era, from a single vineyard of seventeen-year-old vines; a wine of poise and intricate definition, with an immense future before it. The bouquet is remarkably evocative, leaping out of the glass with glorious violet fragrance, crunchy red capsicum, precise tobacco leaf and well-defined blackcurrant aromas. Textbook cabernet fruit of pristine ripeness is the theme of the palate, with a gorgeous, sweet fruit core that glides through a streamlined finish, driven by a fine, gravelly tannin profile of exceptional definition and endurance. It’s fragrant, understated and downright delicious.

Since the old days of The Vicar, Chapel Hill has dreamt of a premium cabernet. Winemaker DJ rockstar Michael Fragos says this block trumps it every time with its richness and varietal definition. Interplay between fruit depth and mineral tannin is captivating – no wonder they call it “gorge”!
