Description

Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier is a collaboration between legendary French wine grower, Michel Chapoutier and wine industry icon, Anthony Terlato. The single vineyard L-Block is from a tiny ‘L’ shaped plot that survived the 13 year drought without irrigation. South facing and at an altitude of 400m, this is a low yielding and cool block. The wine is powerful and intense but with delicate, fine tannins.

Grape variety: Shiraz

Terroir: the soil is composed of silstone with yellow and red podzolic earth and quartz rocks.

Harvest: hand picked at optimum maturity to retain natural freshness.

Vinification: 100% destemmed grapes are fermented in concrete tanks utilising wild yeasts. Gentle extraction by pumping-over and a long maceration of 4-6 weeks ensures a fine, well balanced tannin structure.

Maturing: 100% of the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
