Colonial Estate

Jonathan Maltus is the first Englishman in Bordeaux to win a perfect score from Robert Parker for his 2010 Château Le Dôme (we sold out at £2,200 per case). The hallmark of his work is producing wines of great complexity and longevity - a point proved by the recent hike in scores for his older 2005 vintage of the same, recently re-tasted and awarded 98 points. Jonathan is also known for Château Teyssier, Les Astéries and Vieux Château Mazerat in Bordeaux alone – efforts for which he was awarded an OBE in 2016.

“Jonathan Maltus I have known since he arrived at Château Teyssier 20 years ago, epitomises creation and determination – characteristics well-recognised by his OBE. His wines speak for themselves and should also be awarded an OBE – Ordre de Bordeaux Excellence.” says Steven Spurrier.

Not content with bringing Château Le Dome, Château Teyssier and its satellites to the forefront of modern winemaking in Bordeaux, Jonathan decided to try his hand in Australia by purchasing small blocks of old vines in the Barossa Valley in 2001. These small blocks were in the northern ‘arc’ of the Barossa, focusing on 120 year-old dry-grown vines that have never suffered from phylloxera.

Jonathan and his team's approach to making wines in Australia is old world influenced. This is what separates The Colonial Estate from other wineries around the world. No expense has been spared, with only the finest of winemaking practices and French oak barrels being utilised. In fact, Jonathan has gone to the extreme by importing all his winemaking equipment from St-Emilion: wooden vats, barrels, triage tables etc. as their aim is to produce wines of outstanding stature to set them apart from all the rest...
