About the winery:
The Chapoutier family has long been known as a leading light of the Rhone 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 as JasperHill 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. Unsurprisingly, the focus is on Shiraz, which under Chapoutiers skilled hand manages to evoke the minerality and elegance of the Northern Rhone, whilst still expressing Victoria's soil and climate.
