Chapel Hill 2018 The Vicar Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

Cellar Selection

Chapel Hill's back label includes a shout-out to the growers whose fruit made the cut for this vintage of their premium Shiraz—a nice and all-too-rare gesture. It's a hefty wine destined for the cellar, with bushels of plum, cherry and raspberry fruit leading on the nose, backed by mocha, savory spice and cigar box. Tannins are taut and powerful, with an oaky underbelly set for the long haul. Beneath the power lies a lovely purity of fruit. A solidly crafted wine that should unravel nicely over the years. Drink 2023–2035. Christina Pickard
