Never had this type of blend before, but I was curious to try the work of Terlato & Chapoutier. Hard to taste on its own, it definitely needs food to stand out. Had it with braised lamb and it was awesome!

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier combines the vision of Anthony J. Terlato, the founder of luxury importer and marketer Terlato Wines International, and Michel Chapoutier, the esteemed Rhône grower and vintner whose compelling wines have been exalted by critics around the world. The origin of the Terlato & Chapoutier partnership in Australia dates back to 1998, when Chapoutier enthusiastically told Terlato about a top vineyard site in Australia. Located on an eastern-facing slope on the southern edge of the Pyrenees Hills in western Central Victoria, the region’s soil could produce “great wines,” according to Chapoutier. An impressive offering, this is a unique blend, using the Côte Rôtie tradition of combining 5% Viognier with Syrah, which produces a spicy, aromatic wine. The grapes, planted on 19th century French rootstock, are destemmed and fermented in cement and stainless steel tanks. The maceration lasts 3 weeks in order to give the wine the good tannic structure required for aging and stability. A portion of the Viognier grapes were added during fermentation to fully integrate the flavor and tannins. It shows deep color and intense flavors of red and black berries, gingerbread and black pepper spice.

A very perfumed and complex nose - raspberry jam and floral notes while the wine rests in the glass, with swirling deeper notes of meat, pepper and underbrush and a hint of smoke come out, providing the perfect complement and support to the sweet fru...

Wine Enthusiast Magazine rated it 91 points saying "This joint-venture has been turning out consistently charming, balanced Shiraz over the past few vintages. The 2007 is simultaneously peppery-spicy, floral-perfumed and meaty-savory. It’s medium-bodied, with a lovely plump softness to its mouthfeel, yet not without spine. Drink it over the next 5-8 years."

The 2004 Shiraz/Viognier offers peppery tapenade notes intermixed with cassis and spice. Deep, fleshy, rich, complex, and loaded with fruit, it is ideal for drinking over the next 5-7 years.

For the second consecutive vintage, this wine comes close to mimicking those elusive floral and spice elements of the northern Rhône. The flavors combine apricot and blueberry fruit with licorice, black olive, coffee and cracked pepper. A medium-bodied Shiraz for near-term consumption, but loaded with complexity. Drink now-2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Intense red. Red berries, followed by hints of exotic fruit. Round structure with fine tannins displaying fruity characteristics. A spicy Shiraz from the vineyards of Central Victoria brightens with a boost of Viognier for aroma and balance, as often practiced in Frances most highly regarded appellation of the Northern Rhone Valley, Cote Rotie. The grapes grown in this Austrialian vineyard where planted on 19th century French rootstocks, another nod to the French tradition & influence in this new world wine. This wine is a collaborative effort between two renowned wine families; Chapoutier from the Rhne Valley in France, and Terlato family of Napa Valley in California.
