    Winemaker's Notes:

    A spicy Shiraz from the vineyards of Central Victoria brightens with a boost of Viognier for aroma and balance, as often practiced in France's most highly regarded appellation of the Northern Rhone Valley, Côte Rôtie. The grapes grown in this Austrialian vineyard where planted on 19th century French rootstocks, another nod to the French tradition & influence in this new world wine. This wine is a collaborative effort between two renowned wine families; Chapoutier from the Rhone Valley in France, and Terlato family of Napa Valley in California.

    Blend: 95% Shiraz, 5% Viognier

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rated, but no tasting note given. Although these wines are normally reviewed by my colleagues David Schildknect in his Languedoc-Roussillon and Alsace reports and Lisa Perrotti-Brown in her reviews of Australian wines, I tasted them during my visit with Chapoutier, so I will include them in this report as they are of high quality and merit attention. I will just list the wines, my score, and the region from which they emerge. – Robert Parker

    The Wine Advocate

    WHen is the last time you drank a refreshing Aussie Shiraz? This one plays off the spicy black peppercorn character of the grape: Its crisp, sour cherry fruit is herbal and delicious with a light peppery buzz at the end. A northern Rhone lookalike from Michael Chapoutier's joint venture with the Terlato family.

    This a very nice wine. It is unique not just because of the two well known winemakers behind it's conception but because of the aromatic character of the Voignier, it's color, very smooth, nice aftertaste and nose.

    Nice balance and a bit of spice with a dry finish. An excellent value!

    Delightful wine. Clean rich fruit up front and nice finish. 93 points is absurd. This is a 90 point wine which offers much for its low price.

    Is anyone else having problems printing the cellar notes for this wine?

    Very good, but a little overwhelming on the balck peppercorn notes. Crisp but muscular with a long tangy finish.

    I learned my lesson for not reading reviews before buying. 1st time I've not agreed with RP rating. Earthy is right because it tasted like dirt. I regret buying two now. I continued to retaste looking for the finish that wasn't there. I'll decant again and let it rest for hour tonight and see if anything changes.

    Not tasted. Only one star because the entire order was frozen during delivery pushing the corks out for several bottles. The order was returned and the replacement shipment is scheduled for March (warmer weather).
