Chapel Hill The Vicar Shiraz

Chapel Hill Vicar Shiraz

Chapel Hill Vicar Shiraz – Chapel Hill is based around an historic stone church, so it is appropriate that the flagship red wine for the company be named The Vicar. More wine Vicar? The Vicar has now attended six times in the history of Chapel Hill. His first visitation was in 1993, and he rose again in 1994, 1996, 1998 and 2001. He is a full bodied rich fellow, ordained with the glorious richness of Shiraz and the Reverend heavenly flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon. His complexity and richness, almost of biblical proportions combine with superfine tannins eternal in length (crafted to mature in 12-15 years). He has a devoted following and doesn’t stay around for long.

McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale is predominately a red wine region, producing some of the best red wines in South Australia. Vineyards were first planted in the mid 1800s. One of the early pioneers Thomas Hardy established a business that evolved to BRL Hardy, one of the largest wine companies in the country. The region also has a healthy number of boutique wineries that consistently make fine wines and experiment with different wine styles. The climate is warm to hot with dry summers, and benefits from cooling breezes from the St Vincent Gulf. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz (rich, ripe & generous), Cabernet Sauvignon; White – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc.


flourish in a range of climates. In the warm to hot climates you can expect extremely intense aromatic, rich, full bodied wines, with hugh fruit (almost sweet) and chocolately tasting. In the more moderate/cooler climates you’re more likely to find structured Shiraz wines with black cherry, pepper and spice characters rather than the chocolate and fruit styles found in warmer climates.
