Winemaker's Notes

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; Rhône 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 Rhône Valley and the area's climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz.

Color: Intense and profound red.

Aroma: Complex with black fruit aroma (blackcurrant and blueberries); some chocolate and toasty notes.

Taste: Explosive fruit and concentrated flavor. Very round structure balances the tight, but jammy tannins. A blockbuster to drink during its first 7-10 years.
