Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Grenache

Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Grenache

Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Grenache – McLaren Vale is fortunate to be blessed with a cache of old dry grown bush Grenache vines. These low yielding vines exude the colourful history of the region and result in wines that reflect their age, resilience, dignity and environment. The predominant parcel of grapes that features in this wine is sourced from vines that were planted back in 1926. The smaller portion is from vines that were planted in 1959. The resultant berries from these bush vines are extremely small and develop thick skins that are crammed full of complex flavours, deep colour and textured tannin.

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.

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.
