Produced since 2002, Domaine Cambrien "La Pléïade" by M. Chapoutier is a wine from Heathcote, an appellation located in the heart of the state of Victoria in Australia. The vineyard is planted on an exceptionally rare terroir, comprised of virgin red soil that dates back to the Cambrian period.
A generous and late 2021 vintage, the combination of cool temperatures and rain during the summer revealed, following many years of drought, the elegance, finesse and balance of the fine Australian terroirs.
