McLaren Vale’s regional star blend Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre.

Chapel Hill, The Parson, Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre, McLaren Vale, 2017

Musk sticks and raspberry jubes fight for dominance, like a take home party bag from a kids party (parents: does that even happen any more?) with base notes of earthy gravel and graphite and finishing back with dark, crushed rose petals. Good texture: enough grip to give a serious note to the otherwise up front silky, satiny mouth feel. Bright fruit with a smile and a little kick of saltiness for balance.

RRP: $18
