2017 Chapel Hill Grenache/Syrah/Mourvedre 2018 Chapel Hill Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia

Over the years people just stopped asking for them or found mass brands like Yellow Tail at the grocery stores settling for a recipe rather then a hand crafted brand. When Chapel Hill was introduced to me, I knew I needed to bring them into the shop. Not only for the history behind the brand but the quality and price. Family owned wineries are what it is about!
