Terlato & Chapoutier Lieu-dit Malakoff Shiraz

The Terlato & Chapoutier domain is the French company’s third project in Australia, and the second domain in Victoria. Michel Chapoutier joined forces with the Terlato family (the company’s American distributor) in 2000 in the Great Western Victoria’s Pyrenees on clay- and gravel-intensive soil. Already 20 years into what has been a great adventure.

“The 2014 Lieu-dit Malakoff Shiraz boasts notes of leather, clove, roasted meat and espresso. It’s medium-bodied, with just enough plummy fruit to round out the palate, and it has a softly dusty finish.” – R. Parker – Wine Advocate

Organically certification in progress on vintage 2018.
