Fresh and crisp, with an abundance of ripe stone fruit flavours. There is plenty of fruit-weight on the palate and the finish has a keen acidity, which lifts the savoury, mineral finish.

More info

Grapes for this wine were sourced from vineyards planted on red ferruginous clays over shale. The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity.

Following a gentle pressing, the juice is cold-settled for forty-eight hours. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wine underwent full malolactic fermentation, before undergoing five-months’ ageing on the lees, also in stainless steel tanks.

Winemaker Michel Chapoutier is the seventh generation family member to lead Maison Chapoutier, first established in France in 1808. In 1997, with a natural curiosity and an eye for innovation, he first purchased and planted vineyards in Australia.

Tournon

The Chapoutier family have long been known as a leading light of the Rhône Valley, but in 1997 Michel Chapoutier expanded their horizons into the New World, specifically the Australian region of Victoria. Initially making wines in conjunction with renowned local wineries such Jasper Hill and Giaconda, in 2009 Chapoutier purchased the Shays Flat and Landsborough Valley estates in the Australian Pyrenees, giving birth to the wholly owned Domaine Tournon. Here Chapoutier’s skilled hand manages to evoke the minerality and elegance of the Northern Rhône, whilst still expressing the soil and climate of Victoria.
