Chalk Hill Sidetrack 2005 (McLaren Vale)

A delicious, deep, smooth and richly warming wine. 60% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Grenache. 14.5% alcohol. A rich plum red colour and a pleasant, but not overwhelming bouquet, helped along the way by the Grenache.

The strong varietal flavours are supported by peppermint, chocolate and earthy notes, and it has a beautifully lengthy finish.

This wine is consistent with the excellent standard I've come to expect from Jock Harvey at Chalk Hill Wines, having tasted quite a few of his wines recently. It's aged in a mixture of old and new French Oak.
