Domaine TOURNON & M. CHAPOUTIER Pyrenees Riesling "Landsborough" 2016
Wine Region: Australia - Victoria
Tasting note: Pale gold colour with hints of green. The nose is a combination of pear, ripe lemon and jasmine. Rich and intense palate, very expressive with a young fruity start followed by a long and mineral finish.
About the winery: The Chapoutier family has long been known as a leading light of the Rhone Valley, but in1997 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 the soil and climate of Victoria.
