Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier lieu dit Malakoff Shiraz 2010
Syrah/Shiraz from Australia
Deep ruby in color. Highly aromatic with black fruit aromas (black cherry and black currant) and undertones of dark chocolate, white pepper and eucalyptus. Explosive black berry and black plum flavors with perfectly matched, elegant tannins that give the wine a long, lasting aftertaste. Full bodied and rich.
The Wine Advocate - "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Syrah de Malakoff gives notes of bacon fat, aged meat and prunes with a background of figs, warm blackberries and vanilla, plus forest floor and anise hints. Medium to full-bodied, it offers great structure in the mouth going firm and herbal in the long finish."
Wine Spectator - "This fresh and vibrant red is focused and distinctive, offering black olive and mineral overtones around a vivid core of plum and blackberry fruit. Persists easily against polished tannins."
Wine Enthusiast - "This is as piny and resinous as this bottling has ever been, imparting a slightly medicinal cast to the black cherry and plum aromas. The flavors pick up more traditional hints of ash, espresso and black olive. This medium-bodied wine's slightly dusty tannins turn silky on the finish."

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Winery
Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier combines the vision of Anthony J. Terlato, the founder of luxury importer and marketer Terlato Wines International, and Michel Chapoutier, the esteemed Rhône grower and vintner whose compelling wines have been exalted by critics around the world. The origin of the Terlato & Chapoutier partnership in Australia dates back to 1998, when Chapoutier enthusiastically told Terlato about a top vineyard site in Australia. Located on an eastern-facing slope on the southern edge of the Pyrenees Hills in western Central Victoria, the region’s unique iron-rich and schist soils could produce “great wines,” according to Chapoutier, and the resulting single-vineyard Shiraz from the "Malakoff" vineyard and Shiraz-Viognier blend have been highly lauded since their release in 2006.
