Chapel Hill Parsons Nose Shiraz 2013
For $16 this is a no-brainer.
Purple mauve/inky purple in colour, its only mid-weight but still drenched with purple fruit. Quite sweet and a little tart, it showcases sunny McLaren Vale Shiraz in a juicy mode, without looking overtly confected. Importantly, there’s a thickness to this that puts it above most similar $16 wines.
Good value indeed. Not complex or long, but bang on for price and style.
