Say what you will about Michel Chapoutier, he's certainly brought an Old World style to his Australian ventures. The 2017 Mathilda Shiraz is dark and earthy, with hints of roasted meat, black olive and asphalt on the nose. Yet on the palate, there's a New World sense of blueberry and blackberry fruit that's ripe without being sweet yet dry and savory on the softly dusty finish. At the recommended retail of $16, it's a solid value.

Aromas and flavors of red fruits in the raspberry and red-plum zone, and they are framed in a light and approachable palate with soft, supple tannins.
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.
