LA Times features 2011 Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz-Viognier

“A fresh, spicy Shiraz with a touch of Viognier from respected Rhone producer Michel Chapoutier and Napa Valley’s Anthony Terlato,” writes Los Angeles Times food and wine critic S. Irene Virbila in this week’s edition of the paper’s food section. “But the grapes, obviously, don’t come from either France or California, but from vines in central Victoria, Australia. Their collaboration has produced a wine with character, expressive of Shiraz grown in Victoria. Ruby red, the Shiraz-Viognier is ripe and round, full in the mouth, tasting of red berries, sweet spice and black pepper.”

“Bring out this fresh, spicy Shiraz-Viognier for a burger bash, a barbecue or spaghetti.”
