TASTE
This Cabernet boasts wonderfully vibrant varietal aromas of cassis, peppermint and cloves, and a very composed, sophisticated structure, with well-judged oak and pinpoint balance.

PRODUCER
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 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.

VINEYARD
The growing season commenced early due to warmer than average winter temperatures. The weather during the growing season was extremely favourable, with ripening occurring gradually. The weather pattern allowed the vines to rejuvenate and facilitate the grapes to achieve optimum ripeness and varietal dexterity.

WINERY
The different lots were fermented separately and given at least nine days on skins. Extraction was greater in the early stages of fermentation, to minimize the appearance of astringent tannins. The wine was then aged in barrel for nineteen months – ninety-eight percent French, two percent American, twenty-two percent new.

PRESS
“Deep colour, and dark in character, with an abundance of cassis, saltbush, olive and charry oak; the palate is densely packed with fruit and tannins and the fresh acidity provides energy on the bright medium- bodied finish.” – 90 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2013
