AUS: Terlato & Chapoutier wines get US release
The Australian joint venture between Anthony J. Terlato and Michel Chapoutier has released its first wines.
The venture has unveiled the single-vineyard 2004 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz lieu dit Malakoff from the Australian Pyrenees, and the 2004 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz-Viognier Victoria.
The 2004 Malakoff, made from 100% Shiraz, is bottled unfined and unfiltered, and reflects the low-yielding upland vineyard where the fruit was grown, the winemakers said. The wine has a suggested retail price of US$35 a bottle, and only 640 cases are available in the US.
The 2004 Shiraz-Viognier from Victoria follows the Cote Rotie practice of blending a small amount of Viognier with Syrah. Some 1,745 cases have been made available in the US, with a suggested retail price of U$19.
US wine importer and marketer Anthony Terlato and the French winemaker Michel Chapoutier formed their Australian partnership in 1998, after Chapoutier discovered a new vineyard site in a relatively remote region of Australia. The Malakoff Vineyard is located on an eastern-facing slope in the southern edge of the Pyrenees in western Victoria.
