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.

Vinyard
McLaren Vale is internationally acclaimed as one of the world’s leading Shiraz producing regions. 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 fruit is sourced from various parcels of ungrafted vines, between eighteen and thirty-eight years old; the parcels are harvested separately at optimum ripeness.

Winery
The different lots were fermented separately and kept on skin for at least eight days, then gently basket-pressed. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for twenty months with regular racking to integrate the tannin. The wine was then bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Taste
This opulent Shiraz displays hedonistic blueberry, pimento and roasted almond flavours. There is wonderfully harmonious integration between these fruit flavours, the gently textured oak, and the savoury, mouth-filling structure.

Press
“Good colour; effortlessly captures all that is good about McLaren Vale; it is fairly and squarely medium-bodied, the fruit flavours centred on blackberry, allied with licorice, earth and bitter chocolate; the tannins are fine, the oak restrained; length and balance inevitable.” – 96 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, September 2014
