Domaine Terlato-Chapoutier Lieu dit Malakoff Shiraz 2013

Shiraz | Victoria,  Australia
The soil profile of the Malakoff vineyard is remarkably similar to that of France's northern Rhône Valley and the area's climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz. Explosive black berry and black plum flavors with perfectly matched, elegant tannins that give the wine a long, lasting aftertaste. Full bodied and rich. A treat to drink now and will age well for 7-10 years.

This majestic Shiraz comes from the spectacular Malakoff estate, low-yielding (less than 1t/acre), high-concentration vineyard site in Central Victoria. Gone is the over-ripe, alcoholic in-your-face style of so many Australian Shiraz wines. 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: Rh?ne mast 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 Rh?ne Valley and the area's climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz.
