This wine exudes an evocative array of flavours. Brooding mulberry, aniseed and beetroot flavours all mingle harmoniously in the wine. The layered flavour profile is underpinned by the poised and seamless integration with the trademark Cabernet Sauvignon “dusty” fine grained tannin structure.
- Winemaking Notes
A favourite wine in the Chapel Hill stable. Regal Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers on all fronts. Varietal, balanced, dusty tannins and the sweet core of fruit that McLaren Vale generously provides. Oak ageing: 100% French Oak; 100% Hogsheads (300L); 20% new oak; 21 months.
- Growing Conditions
Below average winter rainfall resulted in a early commencement to the growing season. A warmer than average summer, with no extended periods of extreme heat, resulted in a condensed vintage. Vibrant fruit flavours and acidity were still prevalent and the resultant wines were both varietal and textural.
