Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Shiraz 2010

Blacker than black, a layered texture, progressive feel and movement on the palate.  Initially showed - to me - choc and hazelnut, a hint of chicory, latterly a good core of black and red fruits coming through.

The palate, in addition to that vin de mille-feuilles quality, showed black fruited depth, an almost tarry like quality.  Backed up by regional salted-choc character, it kept the depth over time.  Finished with good drying tannin, a lingering mouthfeel.  Memorable.  92 - Very Good

Tasted on: Monday 10th December, a Flower Day
