Michel Chapoutier established Tournon in 2007 shortly after purchasing 50 hectares of property in the heart of the Victorian Pyrenees and Heathcote. He recognized that the cool weather patterns and remarkable diversity of soil and exposures in this region would allow him to make distinctive wines from the Syrah/Shiraz grape of his homeland utilizing his biodynamic winegrowing philosophy. Named after the Hermitage commune, Tournon leads the movement in Australia towards elegant, balanced wines.
This Shiraz shows a brilliant, dark ruby appearance with intense aromas of ripe black fruits and peppers. The palate is fresh and juicy with silky and elegant tannins.
This rich classic varietal pairs beautifully with brisket, stews, roast lamb, BBQ and mushroom dishes.
