Chapel Hill McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon (McLaren Vale, SA)
14.5%, Screwcap, $30
McLaren Vale Cabernet can be a juicy and enjoyable beast at times. Hedonism over varietal character perhaps but still enjoyable.
Rather juicy and plummy Cabernet this driven by its mid palate juiciness and good fine tannins. Maybe a fraction too much blackberry fruit bomb going on but undoubtedly attractive and plump and sufficiently drying. A little diffuse but pleasure aplenty here.
Score: 16.8/20 89/100
Would I buy it? Almost. A little expensive for mine.
