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.
This Landsborough Vineyard Chardonnay, Tournon has notes of toasted brioche and tropical fruits lifted by crisp citrus flavours. The rich, rounded palate and textural weight are perfectly offset by the keen acidity and a long, lean mineral finish.
