Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier is a collaboration between legendary French wine grower, Michel Chapoutier and Napa Valley icon, Anthony Terlato. This spicy Shiraz comes from vineyards located in Central Victoria brightens with an addition of 5% Viognier for floral aromas, a silky texture and balanced structure, as often practiced in France’s most highly regarded appellation of the Northern Rhône Valley, Côte Rôtie. The grapes grown in this Austrialian vineyard were planted on 19th century French rootstocks, another nod to the French tradition and influence in this new world wine.
(2014 vintage, the 2015 is yrt to be reviewed)
Containing 5% Viognier, the 2014 Shiraz / Viognier has a medium garnet color and nose of red and black plums and mulberries, with an herb and forest floor undercurrent, plus a hint of pepper. Medium-bodied, there is a pleasant raisin and earthy character coming through on the palate that is complimented by velvety tannins and finishing with good persistence. 89+ Points, Wine Advocate
