Colonial Estate

Jonathan Maltus (the founder of Colonial Estate) is probably the closest you will ever get to a real rockstar winemaker. Iconic, ridiculously talented and the first Englishman in Bordeaux to win a perfect score from Robert Parker for his 2010 Château Dome Le Dôme (we sold out at £2,200 per case). His ’09 received 99 points!

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...
