2012 Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Shiraz

imageColour me confused. 2012 saw Chapel Hill makes their finest Sangiovese…and perhaps one of least distinguished Shiraz wines.

The flavour profile is as you’d expect. Mulberries, plums, salted Dutch licorice, milk chocolate and the like. But there’s a strange absence of depth. The oak actually feels very raw and the tannin lacks sophistication. I’m really not sold on this. 87
