Buy Tournon  Shiraz Mathilda
Wine Advocate 87 points - Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2013 Mathilda Shiraz is a little rubbery/reduced to begin with a core of black raspberries and blackberries plus hints of tar and licorice. Medium-bodied, it gives a good amount of juicy red and black berry flavors with a slight earthiness and chew to the finish of moderate length. (Feb 2015)

Michel Chapoutier, owner and winemaker of M. Chapoutier, one of the Rhone Valley’s most esteemed estates, founded 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 schist and quartz soils and Lady’s Lane is planted on gentle slopes of well draining deep red Cambrian soils. 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 Shiraz. Michel named Tournon after its famous cousin in Hermitage, France. As in France and now in Australia, Michel is producing wines of elegance and balance.
