Description · Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill The Vicar Shiraz 2016 (Shiraz)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Chapel Hill The Vicar Shiraz 2016 has a deep purple complexion.
  • Nose: Intense bouquet full of black berries, lavender, and cassis, enveloped in the aromas of plum and blueberry.
  • Mouth: Full body and soft tannins. Plenty of fruity flavours, with notes of dark chocolate, and a bit of spicy fruit cake. Silky and smooth, with a lingering finish.

APPELLATION: McLaren Vale

VINEYARD: Chapel Hill. Named after the iconic irongate chapel imprinted into every bottle, this winery started in the business in the early 70s. Now, with the philosophy of interfering the least amount possible with the work of Mother Nature, these wines have gained recognition in South Australia for their complexity and fruity character.

GRAPES: 100% Shiraz.

AGEING: Aged for a period of 22 months in oak barrels.

PREPARATION: The grapes were harvested and separated by plots, and vinified in a separate fashion. Gentle pressing, followed by fermentation with the skins on for a minimum of eleven days was the go-to procedure. The wine was then left to mature, during which the barrels were racked following a rigorous schedule in order to fully integrate all flavours and tannins. When the desired maturity is achieved, the wine is finally bottled unfiltered and unfined.

PAIRING: This dark red is an ideal match to strong courses, such as beef, lamb, deer, venison, and poultry.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 16-18°C

ALCOHOL: 14.5

4/5

Chapel Hill The Vicar Shiraz 2016

- The Vicar Shiraz 2016 displays charismatic layers of aniseed, rosemary and cured meats, which are seamlessly interwoven into the poised savoury texture.
- The harmonious balance of the cascading layers of varietal flavour, palate weight, grainy tannin and acidity will ensure that the wine will develop further complexity over the next 15 to 20 years.

The border colour was almost brown . The most noticeable smell is raspberry. Powerful flavour.
I had it alone.
It was part of a Corporate gift.

Suitable for a menu as varied as we had. I had it with my friends.
Red intense cherry colour and very high layer. Cedarwood aromas. Sweet and tasty.
