This starts off with a decidedly oaky nose but there is a nice black pepper tone and plenty of stemmy, almost floral notes, with a real oystershell mineral edge that helps the wild berry and dried plum fruit to pop. This is really tight up front with a very lean, crisp feel that is decidedly un-shirazy. There is plenty of fresh blueberry fruit with nice notes of pepper and very well integrated and unobtrusive oak. On the finish the fruit turns a bit more assertive and darker with a vivid plummy streak and a tiny bit of heat. This really has a compelling inner mouth perfume that is light, fresh and floral tinted. This is savory with a vibrant real edge to it. 93pts

The nose is decadent, featuring chocolate, strawberries, cedar, tobacco, and cinnamon. Good acidity and mild tannins on the mouth, with a long fruit finish and a touch of butter

A heady nose, with tart lime and quince notes. Nice florals and good mouthfeel. Cherry and cedar flavors before a bright fruit finish.

Deep garnet color. White pepper, wild strawberry preserves, and cocoa Slight rhubarb edge with a mouthfilling texture and lingering savory, earthly spice.

A spicy Shiraz from the vineyards of Central Victoria brightened with a boost of Viognier for aroma and balance, as often practiced in Frances most highly regarded appellation of the Northern Rhone Valley, Cte Rtie.

Wine Tasting NotesIntense 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.

Crisp and vibrant. A juicy mouthful of blueberry and plum flavors, with a black pepper note and a pleasing minerality to the finish that give this distinction. Best from 2009 through 2016. 400 cases made. -HS Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Victoria in Australia. 2006 Terlato & Chapoutier, Domaine Shiraz lieu dit Malakoff 750ml

With its trademark braille label and biodynamically grown grapes, this example of Chapoutier's diverse range leans toward the modern styling. 95% Shiraz with just a touch of Viognier.

95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier, but the little 5% does an amazing job lifting the aromas out of the glass. Fun and different, this is a fantastic little wine. Bright ruby and purple in the glass with a fresh apricot nose over black pepper, blackberry and... Mike Supple.

Wine Tasting NotesBlack raspberry red. Complex with black fruit aromas (black cherry and black currant) some chocolate and toasty notes. Explosive black berry and pomegranate-like flavors with perfectly matched tannins that give the wine a long, lasting aftertaste. A treat to drink now and will age well for 7-10 years.This majestic Shiraz comes from the spectacular Malakoff estate, low-yielding, high-concentration vineyard site in Central Victoria. Its intense black fruit aromas and firm structure are classic features of the variety as interpreted by two renowned wine families; Rhone master Michel Chapoutier, together with wine authority and Napa Valley vintner Anthony Terlato. The Malakoff vineyard, in central western Victoria, is situated on an eastern facing slope of Australia's Pyrenees Mountains. The vineyard receives optimum sun exposure and is located in the center of the prized Shiraz growing region. The soil profile is remarkably similar to that of France's northern Rhone Valley and the area's climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz.
