Top Aussie Red

Chapel Hill Sangiovese, McLaren Vale 2012 $25

A typical sangiovese – sapid and dry, the opposite of fruity – and not very deeply coloured, showing savoury bacon-bone, dried-herb, star-anise and licorice aromas. It’s intense and savoury, long and elegant on the finish. A very stylish wine. Now to 2025. 14 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: slow-braised meats

Stockists: Camperdown Cellars
