Michel Chapoutier long sought relatively cool region of the New World for the production of wine in the style of the Rhone Valley. This showed up in Australia, and in 1997 bought the estate Chapoutier Domaine Tournon. This gave him the ability to create premium wines, combining the skills of top winemakers in Australia with its own wine-making experience. Vineyards as it opened at the Chapoutier handled exclusively organic methods, so wines are very natural and perfectly reflect the terroir. By limiting yields and traditional French winemaking are born strong and elegant, very gastronomic wine suitable for long aging. We must understand that wine Tournon Domain - this is not an imitation of French wines and wines with its own vivid individuality and local character, which are the embodiment of the spirit of the country. For example, a Shiraz from the farm Domaine Tournon distinctive character in comparison with other very powerful local Shiraz, remaining, however, at the same time very "Australian".
