2013 GSM Côtes du Roussillon Domaine Treloar
|Grapes||Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre|
|Sub-district||Côtes du Roussillon|
Inspired by Yorkshire’s famous Three Peaks trial - the name relates not just to the peaks of the Pyrenees that are so much part of the landscape here: Pic de Nouolous, Roc de France and Pic de Canigou - but also the 3 different varietals that make up the majority of this cracking wine 40% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache. There is also a touch of Carignan. The different varieties are aged picked, fermented and aged separately - then blended the following year after harvest. As with all Jonathan’s wines this is hand-picked and sorted each variety then ferments in concrete and ages for 12 months in old oak barrels before blending. A delicious drop that is full of spicy dark fruits - a mineral undercurrent keeps it fresh and flowing and then there is super cinnamon and clove-like spices. A perfect autumnal supper wine sleek yet with just enough bite. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Living and working in New York on the 11th of September 2001, just one block away from the World Trade Centre, changed forever the lives and the direction of the future, for Jonathan & Rachel.
They realised that life was to be lived and cherished and that the corporate rat race was not the ‘be all and end all’. So, they moved to New Zealand Rachel’s homeland and put together a new life-plan.
Here Jonathan went back to school - to Wine University at Lincoln, where he qualified as a Viticulturist and Oenologist. He graduated top of his class. He quickly got some great jobs wine-making in New Zealand and honed his skills rapidly.
Then came the hunt for their own vineyard - which led them to this sunny, wild corner of South West France and Domaine Treloar was born. With just 9 Hectares this is small, but high-quality, artisan wine-making is what they do - and the results are deeply impressive. Poised wines that speak of the place they come from. Characterful and textured, these fine wines are a long way from the norm in this part of France, where flesh, flab and extraction often win out over finesse and drive.
Treloar is Rachel's maiden name and her Maori and Cornish ancestry is reflected in the estate’s name and their logo.
'Here in the Roussillon we bring together a passion for good wine, New World techniques and the wonderful local terroir.'
