Tournon Lady’s Lane Vineyard Shiraz Australian Wines

£25.50

Bold redcurrant and red berry flavours are followed by sweet toffee notes and a heady whiff of smokey incense. There is plenty of power here, but the rich tannins and ripe fruit are followed by a well-delineated acidity that imparts elegance and freshness.

Producer

The Chapoutier family have long been known as a leading light of the Rhône Valley, but in 1997 Michel Chapoutier expanded their horizons into the New World, specifically the Australian region of Victoria. Initially making wines in conjunction with renowned local wineries such Jasper Hill and Giaconda, in 2009 Chapoutier purchased the Shays Flat and Landsborough Valley estates in the Australian Pyrenees, giving birth to the wholly owned Domaine Tournon. Here Chapoutier’s skilled hand manages to evoke the minerality and elegance of the Northern Rhône,
whilst still expressing the soil and climate of Victoria.

Vineyard

Grapes for this wine are sourced from dry-farmed four hectare Lady’s Lane vineyard in Heathcote. The vines are planted 500 million year-old, crushed volcanic basalt soil. The grapes were hand-harvested at night.

Winery

Following destemming, the grapes were pressed and the juice underwent alcoholic fermentation with the skins. Fermentation took place over a six week period in concrete vats at 25-28 degrees, using indigenous yeast. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was then aged for twelve to fourteen months in French oak barrels, twenty percent of which were new.
