The Story: Renowned Rhone Valley innovator Michel Chapoutier unlocks the potential of soil and sun in Victoria, Australia. Vineyard: When Michel saw Malakoff he said “Greatness is possible here.” The Lieu Dit Malakoff Shiraz is a single vineyard with 46 planted acres on an Eastern facing slope. The Shiraz-Viognier is grown further south on the Geelong peninsula. Soil: At Malakoff, red schist allows deep root penetration and contains high levels of iron. The schist combines with quartz which adds flinty character and aromas of white peppercorn.

The fruit for Shiraz Viognier comes from the more moderate Geelong peninsula with cooling maritime breezes.

It just filled me with woozy, oppressed, overstuffed gloom. It was like thin treacle poured over a flagstone floor. What is it with this terrible stuff?" His full unfortunate expe... Read More
