TASTING NOTES
Chapel Hill’s flagship wine displays layers of opulent blackberry, spice, mocha and liquorice flavours which are seamlessly interlinked by a sublime savoury texture.

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 grapes were selected from Chapel Hill’s three most outstanding parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, with vines aged between twenty-two and sixty-six years.

WINERY
The various vineyard parcels were harvested and fermented separately in open fermenters, with at least ten days on skins. Each lot was then basket pressed, and the free run and pressing components combined. The wine was then matured for nineteen months in French oak hogsheads, with twenty-three percent new wood, before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

PRESS
“Dense, deep purple; from the best blocks and vineyards of the vintage ... This is the fullest-bodied Chapel Hill ‘11 Shiraz, achieving its power with less obvious effort, the black fruit, savoury chocolate, oak and tannin contributions all in sync.” – 94 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2013
