Lead Time 5 day lead-time required Why?

Michel Chapoutier, owner and winemaker of M. Chapoutier, one of the Rhone Valley’s most esteemed estates, founded Domain Tournon in 2007. The 123 acre estate is located in the Victorian Pyrenees and Heathcote region of Australia. The Shays Flat Vineyard, situated on an east facing ridge in the southern Pyrenees foothills, is planted on red soils of schist and quartz soils and Lady’s Lane is planted on gentle slopes of well draining deep red-brown gravely earth over basalt bedrock. The estate vineyards are farmed using biodynamics and the Shiraz is hand-picked and destemmed prior to fermentation. The cool weather allows Michel to craft distinctive red and white wines. Michel named Tournon after the town in the Rhone Valley. As in France and now in Australia, Michel is producing wines of elegance and balance.

Tasting notes
Aromas of red currants, leather, crushed berries and notes of toffee merge with flavors of ripe fruit and sweet baking spices on the persistent finish.

 Wine Advocate 94 points (Feb 2015)
Medium garnet colored, the 2010 Lady’s Lane Vineyard Shiraz offers quite a minty, eucalypt and floral-laced nose over a core of baked blackberries, cherry cordial and licorice. The rich, medium to full-bodied palate offers ripe, “sweet” fruit, grainy tannins and a long, layered finish.

Technical notes
The fruit was fermented in concrete tanks and macerated for 4-6 weeks with daily pump overs. The wine was aged for 14 months in French oak (10%-15% new).
