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.
