Terlato and Chapoutier Australia
This majestic Shiraz comes from the spectacular Malakoff estate, low-yielding (less than 1ton/acre), high-concentration vineyard site in Central Victoria. Gone is the over done and oaky Aussie style. In its place is a medium bodied wine wrapped in a silky texture that is a revelation of what Australian Shiraz can be when made by one of the great winemakers of Syrah. This variety has been interpreted by two renowned wine families; Rhone master Michel Chapoutier, together with wine authority and Napa Valley vintner Anthony Terlato. The soil profile of the Malakoff vineyard is remarkably similar to that of France’s northern Rhone Valley and the area’s climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz.
Wine Spectator 92 Points Dripping with minerality, this has oodles of crushed stone and slate character riding over the bass notes of ripe plum and spice, finishing with snap and pizzazz. Textbook Victoria. Best from 2012 through 2017. 908 cases made.
