Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz Lieu Dit Malakoff 2009

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz Lieu Dit Malakoff 750ml 2009        
Sku: 1743414*

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; Rhône 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 Rhône Valley and the area's climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz.

The Terlato-Chapoutier wines offer a refreshing, medium-bodied style of Australian Shiraz. Anise and mint feature prominently in this vintage, plus notes of blackberry, espresso and spice. Drink now-2016. - Editor’s Choice

Dark, crisp, focused and juicy, with floral blackberry fruit, accented with distinctive mineral notes of wet stone and basalt. This has intensity and deft balance. Drink now through 2019.—H.S.
