3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

This majestic Shiraz comes from the spectacular Malakoff estate, low-yielding (less than 1t/acre), high-concentration vineyard site in Central Victoria. Gone is the over-ripe, alcoholic in-your-face style of so many Australian shiraz wines. In its place is a medium bodied wine wrapped in a silky texture that is a revelation of what Australian shiraz can be when made by one of the great winemakers of syrah. This variety has been interpreted by two renowned wine families; Rhône master Michel Chapoutier, together with wine authority and Napa Valley vintner Anthony Terlato. The soil profile of the Malakoff vineyard is remarkably similar to that of France's northern Rhône Valley and the area's climate is ideal for growing superior quality Shiraz.

Rated, but no tasting note given.
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Aug 28 2013)
Sleek and lively with acidity, this is restrained overall, spreading its flavors of plum, black olive and sweet leather over a fine-grained frame, lilting on the finish. Drink now through 2018.—H.S.
