Chalk Hill Wines Sidetrack Shiraz Grenache (McLaren Vale) 2011
Composed of Shiraz and Grenache, the 2011 Sidetrack is deep garnet-purple in color with notes of blackberry preserves, blackcurrant cordial and dried plums plus underlying suggestions of tar, black pepper and damp loam. Full bodied with a good concentration of dark fruit and earthy flavors, it has a medium level of chewy tannins, crisp acidity and a long finish.
