Terlato & Chapoutier Lieu Dit Malakoff Pyrenees Shiraz, 2006

This Australian Shiraz is made by Rhone winemaker Michel Chapoutier and combines the best of Old and New World Syrah. The Malakoff vineyard, in the Pyrenees Mountains of central Victoria is well situated and low yielding (about one ton/acre). The result is a special wine.

 Deep ruby, bright and holding well. Ripe Australian fruit plus the savory traits of Northern Rhone Syrah. Black raspberries, cassis, black olives and crushed pepper. Acidity that brings out the most attractive qualities of the ripe fruit. Tannins are well integrated. Drinking beautifully right now.
