Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz Lieu Dit Malakoff 2010

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz Lieu Dit Malakoff 1.50L 2010      
Sku: 1754022*

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.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Syrah de Malakoff gives notes of bacon fat, aged meat and prunes with a background of figs, warm blackberries and vanilla, plus forest floor and anise hints. Medium to full-bodied, it offers great structure in the mouth going firm and herbal in the long finish.
Fresh and vibrant, focused and distinctive, offering black olive and mineral overtones around a vivid core of plum and blackberry fruit. Persists easily against polished tannins. Drink now through 2018.—H.S.
These Chapoutier wines are sometimes reviewed by my colleagues David Schildknect in his Languedoc-Roussillon report and Lisa Perrotti-Brown in her reviews of Australian wines, so I will just list the wines, my score, and the region from which they emerge. They are of very high quality and deserve readers’ attention. Hopefully my prose has convinced more than a handful of readers to try these remarkable wines from one of the most fascinating and compelling personalities in the entire wine world, and one dedicated to the highest quality.
