The Colonial Estate, cuvees are high quality wines possessing outstanding concentration and intensity along with considerable finesse and elegance." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 2006. The Colonial Estate, owned by the iconic Jonathan Maltus, who shortly after purchasing Château Teyssier in St Emilion in the early ‘90s, created and released “Le Dôme”, one of the most renown “garagiste” wines from Bordeaux. In Australia, Maltus makes wines that are from handpicked, double-sorted grapes that are grown on very old vines from the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Exile is his flagship wine. It is 100% sourced from the ‘Lange’ Vineyard. This increidbly concentrated single-vineyard wine is made up of old vine Shiraz with a touch of Mourvedre and a spalsh of Muscadelle. The age of some of these vines date back to the 1800’s. The wine is made in the French fashion – low cropping aided by green harvesting, handpicking into trays, and double-triage on arrival at the winery. The wooden vats – shipped from Cognac in France -appear incongruous in their setting. The wine is picked ripe and, after vinification, poured into pure new French oak. Exile manifests itself as a rush of substance, power, flavor, and length, but with an underpinning definition and elegance. Robert Parker scored it 96 points and said: "100% new French oak-aged blend of 85% Shiraz and the rest primarily Mourvedre, it is a wine of extraordinary intensity as well as aromatic purity. Blackberry, espresso roast, scorched earth, and flower characteristics are found in this full-bodied yet elegant, well-defined effort. It should drink beautifully for 10-15 years.
