The schist combines with quartz which adds flinty character and aromas of white peppercorn. Climate: Continental with extreme daily swings in temperature (can change 45⁰ F to 100⁰ F) which allows a later harvest than is typical in the region for enhanced ripeness that preserves complex aromas and flavors. The fruit for Shiraz Viognier comes from the more moderate Geelong peninsula with cooling maritime breezes. Viticulture: The Malakoff vineyards are planted on their own rootstocks, farmed with minimal irrigation and grown with Read more »

  • Terlato-Chapoutier Shiraz Viognier 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I like shiraz, and I like viognier. But a shiraz-viognier blend? I have to say, I was skeptical. But I'm happy I let my curiosity win out over my skepticism because this was a great find! Let this open up a little and its quite lovely. Read More
