Description

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); 24% new oak; 16 months.

Growing Conditions

Heavy winter rains filled the soil profile and set the vines up well for the season. Ideal growing conditions through spring encouraged a healthy, balanced canopy.
A comparatively cool and dry February and March allowed the vines to ripen at a steady pace, developing beautifully supple tannins at moderate sugar levels whilst retaining bright fruit flavours.
