Chapel Hill Winery in McLaren Vale was built on the site of the Seaview Chapel and school house. The 1865 ironstone Chapel still proudly stands today and is an integral feature of the tasting room. Planting of the vineyard commenced in 1972 and the first vintage was in 1975. Perched on the edge of the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge, shallow rocky soils are a feature with sweeping views back over McLaren Vale and Gulf St Vincent.

White winemaking is about instinctive vineyard management and carefully monitoring the ripening process to ensure that we retain and showcase the delicious fruit flavours in the finished wines.
The white winemaking commences with slow and gentle pressing to separate the juice from the skins and seeds. The free run juice and very gentle pressing portions are combined and separated from the remaining pressing fraction. Only the free run component is used in our white winemaking as it is aromatic and delicate, with more vibrant acidity.
The free run is cold settled, allowing the juice to clarify naturally, preserving the precious aromatics and freshness. This juice is then inoculated with neutral yeasts, selected to respect the site and varietal characteristics.
When the ferment is completed, the wine continues to be stored on yeast lees, which encourages additional mouthfeel and texture.
Once the white wines have matured they are sent to bottle with only minimal additions and without the use of any fining agents. As a result of this winemaking, all of our white wines, with the exception of the Pinot Grigio, are suitable for vegans.

Heartland Wine Spice Trader

Heartland Wine Spice Trader

This is a rich, ripe Shiraz-Cab blend from Langhorne Creek in South Australia. The nose opens with aromas of cola, plums, olive and ground black pepper backed by hints of mint and vanillin oak. The palate is bold, plush and sweet-fruited, with chunky oak that shows up particularly on the finish.

The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are fermented separately with specific parcels included for their ability to offer greater complexity and character. Time in barrel permits a softening of the wine’s structure. It also offers a complex expression of the fruit and helps the exotic notes of spice to be discovered.

This is a very dark glass of juicy and delicious red. A burst of intense primary fruit greets the palate with blueberries, blackberries and currants. These powerful fruit notes can engulf the uninitiated, but waves of spice can be discovered by seasoned flavour explorers.

Good winter rainfall provided cover crops for a moisture retaining mulch throughout the dry spring and summer. The lack of rainfall over the growing period led to lower yields. Summer saw mostly cool temperatures and an early vintage with most of the region’s fruit off by early April. The Langhorne Creek wine region benefits from cooling afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina and this season was no exception. The welcome breezes helped keep overnight temperatures down, enabling fruit to maintain natural acidity.

Today, the Heartland winery produces only red wines and Langhorne Creek is the only area where the winery gets its grapes from.
Located at just about an hour’s drive away from Adelaide, Langhorne Creek is one of the most ancient wine regions in Australia. Some of the country’s oldest and lesser-known viticulture methods are employed for growing the vines here. The southerly-wind dominated climate and alluvial-rich sandy loam soil are two of the main reasons for the full character and flavour of the grapes grown here. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and their related blends are the common varietals grown here.

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

These Bordeaux varieties were processed individually with a portion fermented in open fermenters at temperatures up to 28°C. Control of tannin extraction and flavour preservation, were integral in the fermentation. Wine was pressed to Bordeaux style French oak, to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was blended from its components after maturation. The Merlot adds plush fruit and leafy characters as well as providing juicy acidity, in contrast to the Cabernet Sauvignon’s structured, but ripe tannin profile.

VINTAGE 2015
REGION McLaren Vale
Situated approximately 35km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale was first established as a grape-growing region in 1838. Warm summers, moderate winters,
dominant winter rain and low humidity characterize its Mediterranean climate.

COLOUR Bright dark plum red colour with good depth
BOUQUET Displaying spicy, slightly dusty closed aromatics at first, opening to spicy mulberry fruit aromas.
PALATE A rich and smooth Shiraz with lovely fruit and spice flavours. Sweet, round palate with loose tannins balanced with dark mulberry and fresh plum fruits flavor and style.
WINEMAKING Grapes are picked on both colour and flavour development, then crushed and fermented for 7-10 days at approximately 20 degrees. Small open top fermenters
are used with hand pumping over and returns to ensure optimum extraction of tannins and colour. The ferment is then softly pressed using an airbag press, so we do not extract the bitter tannin, producing a fruit driven style of wine. Once pressed the wine is allowed to go through natural malolactic fermentation. Further complexity is added by maturation in French and American oak for 9-12 months.
ALCOHOL 14.5
PH 3.63
ACIDITY 6.3
SUGAR 1.9
WINEMAKER Chris Dix
FOOD MATCH Tenderloin Steak or Peppered red meat
