Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz Viognier 2005
|Brand||Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier|
Wine AdvocateFrom a partnership between Michel Chapoutier and the owner of Paterno Imports, the Terlato family, the 2005 Shiraz/Viognier is an exotic, fleshy, plump, seductive vin de plaisir. Exotic litchi nut, apricot, black cherry, and cassis characteristics are found in this fleshy, soft, deliciously fruity, supple-textured Aussie red. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.
Wine SpectatorLithe, supple and generous with its sweet apricot and orange-scented blackberry and plum flavors, finishing on a sweet, spicy note. Maybe this overdoes the Viognier, but it's an attractive wine. Drink now through 2012.
