Description
 
Seeking excellence in the land Down Under, in 2009 Michel Chapoutier bought two new vineyards (Shays Flat Estate and Landsborough Valley Estate) in the Victorian Pyrenees to set up the fully owned label, Tournon. Michel recognized two unique terroirs that would allow him to make distinctive wines utilizing the Syrah/Shiraz grape that originates in his homeland. A southern extension of the Great Dividing Range, The Pyrenees foothills and ranges create a remarkable diversity of microclimates and soils that provide wealth of variety for winemakers. The cool weather patterns and unique soil in this region are an ideal place for the development of Chapoutier’s biodynamic winegrowing philosophy, and of extending Rhône traditions. Like in Hermitage, Michel's challenge is to show the diversity of this area by producing racy Shiraz from different type of soils.

Say what you will about Michel Chapoutier, he's certainly brought an Old World style to his Australian ventures. The 2017 Mathilda Shiraz is dark and earthy, with hints of roasted meat, black olive and asphalt on the nose. Yet on the palate, there's a New World sense of blueberry and blackberry fruit that's ripe without being sweet yet dry and savory on the softly dusty finish. At the recommended retail of $16, it's a solid value. Wine Advocate 88
