Chapel Hill The Chosen Road Block Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
McLaren Vale got out of jail in the tough, wet 2011 season compared with much of south-eastern Australia, making an elegant, spicy shiraz style. These are not blockbusters, nor will they be long-lived, but there is appeal in the wines of those who sorted their fruit stringently. Chapel Hill'ss single Road Block vineyard has yielded an elegantly lifted and fragrant style of pink pepper and spicy red berry fruits. Its structure carries an impressive mineral poise with an astringency to its tannins that will see it out for a decade. This vintage is not good timing for a $10 price rise. 2013
Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
An exactingly honed Road Block, built around a chassis of intensely firm, finely structured tannins that gradually relinquish their grip to reveal honed black plum and black cherry fruit. This is a consummately structured and textural shiraz that balances fruit ripeness and oak impeccably to a sophisticated and long-ageing end.

Tyson Stelzer (2009 Vintage) says
Road Block will stop you in your tracks with its fragrant bouquet and pure, spicy red fruits! Energetic tannins and vibrant acidity punctuate this fruit-accented style. The two Chapel hill wines exemplify Scarce Earth; from vineyards just fifty metres apart, these are wines of profoundly unique profiles.
