Food Pairings for Chapel Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Mclaren Vale
External Reviews for Chapel Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Mclaren Vale
The Chapel Hill Cabernet Sauvignon exudes an evocative array of flavors. Brooding plum, dark cherry, liquorices and cashew flavors all mingle harmoniously in the wine. The flavor profile is underpinned by the subtle and seamless integration of the spicy oak and the sumptuous finely grained tannin structure. 100% McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon, matured 20 months in 300 L oak hogsheads, of which 86% French and 14% American. Oak age was 36% new, 27% second use, 37% third use.
McLaren Vale is much underrated as a region producing great Cabernet Sauvignon, its maritime conditions modify temperatures and extends the growing season, adding complexity. One thing that is not underrated at Chapel Hill is the winemaking talent of Michael Fragos, brought to Chapel Hill from Tatachilla, he has an understanding of McLaren Vale that is quite exceptional.
