Winemaker 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; Rhone 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.

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier, , Australia
Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier
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.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
