Terlato and Chapoutier Shiraz Viognier 2013 - Damaged Label

Terlato and Chapoutier Shiraz Viognier 2013 - DAMAGED LABEL - 2 BOTTLES LEFT 2015 Wine Spectator Top 100 - #66

Tasting Notes

1/15/16
Displaying lovely vibrancy to the aromatics, florals, spice, then black cherry, this has nice lift and freshness which transfers over into the palate. Medium bodied, the tannins are quite suave and fine, giving a sleek textural feel, leaving a powdery impression on a lengthy finish, with a core of lifted red fruit and darker red flavors. This should drink impressively over the next 2-3 years quite easily.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2013 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz-Viognier is a true standout red wine that took me by surprise. A most unusual Aussie effort, this wine combined the efforts of two distinctly different mind sets. Who would have thought that the French and the Aussies could create magic in a bottle? This Franco-Australian teamwork has resulted in a red wine of really fine complexity and style. Medium red, ruby color; pleasing red fruit aroma, fine depth; medium bodied, well layered on the palate, but not fat or cumbersome, really fine structure, dry, fine acidity, well balanced; zesty, red fruit flavors, lively and bright finish.

Fresh and expressive, medium-weight but vivid, with black cherry and floral notes, balanced by a stony minerality that glides into the long finish against fine tannins. Drink now through 2020. 4,500 cases made.



Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby color. Vibrant red plum and fruit wood smoke aroma. Mouthfilling bright plum and red berry fruits, full bodied but smooth.
