Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Lieu-Dit Malakoff Shiraz 2013, Australia

Exclusive to Slurp in the UK. This majestic Shiraz is a collaboration between legendary French wine grower,  Michel Chapoutier and Napa Valley icon, Anthony Terlato.

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier is a collaboration between legendary French wine grower,  Michel Chapoutier and Napa Valley icon, Anthony Terlato. 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. 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.

Slightly lighter on its feet than its sibling, L-Block, the Lieu-Dit shows more meat and black olive characters combined with ripe cherry, chocolate, cola, and oak spice. The palate is tangy and herbal while the powerful tannins are fine grained and the acidity well balanced. This should age rather nicely. Drink 2019–2037.

Tasting Notes
A deep ruby in the glass, with aromatic black fruit aromas of black cherry and blackcurrent, with hints of chocolate, pepper and menthol. The wine is full-bodied and full-flavoured but balanced with delightful freshness. It has intense black berry fruit and pomegranate flavours, rounded and ripe tannins, and a delicious long finish.  Ready now, this can also cellar well  for 7-10 years.
