Domaine TOURNON & M. Chapoutier Grenache "Mathilda" 2019
Wine Region: Victoria - Australia
Tasting notes: Grapefruit and floral aromas, along with a subtle hint of peach. Clean and honest on entry to the palate, with nice, refreshing acidity. The wine releases graceful notes of red fruit and reveals a lovely, fresh finish.
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.
