Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Chalk Hill is a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia, and we now have six vineyards spread across the beautiful McLaren Vale wine region. Our home vineyard was first planted in 1897 and these century old vines still bear fruit today.
McLaren Vale is unique being so close to the cooling waters of the Gulf of St Vincent, and having a wonderful tapestry of soils that provide great diversity for growing grapes. It has been the mapping of these soil types and an understanding of the topography that allows us to tailor specific varieties to parts of our vineyard. The nurturing of these vines ensures we have a broad pallet of flavours
A perfumed nose of red berry fruits, floral notes and a hint of roasted nuts and spice. The palate is vibrant red berry fruits that burst with freshness on the palate and fine savoury tannins lingering on the finish."
