Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz/Viognier 2011, Victoria
Super-intense nose of spicy black pepper, floral notes, blackberry, cured meat and sour cherry. Nice replays of the aromas on the palate, with firm tannic structure speaking of Victoria’s cool climate, and the sheer intensity of dark fruit speaking of Australia. A very interesting wine that must be tried to be believed – see if your wine friends can guess it’s from Oz! (VINTAGES panel, March 2013)

I thought this was excellent. Could easily be mistaken for a Pinot Noir. It is quite complex with cherry, rhubarb, plum, and savoury/pencil shaving like notes. Medium bodied, with a silky mouthfeel, fresh and balanced acidity, and the 13% alcohol is a nice change. A highly drinkable wine.
