Domaine Treloar is an independant vigneron in the Languedoc-Roussillon.
La Promise is an IGP Côtes Catalanes blanc. Named after the Bruce Springteen song “Promised Land”. A wild-ferment wine made from Macabeu, Grenache gris and Carignan blanc. Fermented and aged on lees in barrels for 6-9 months.
The nose is subtle with hints of pears and river stones. The complex layers of flavours only appear after several seconds in the mouth. (It is not a quaffer!). Quince, wax and a smoky minerality. Serve only lightly chilled. Improves with a little aeration and decanting.
This wine is named after Bruce Springsteen’s song “The Promised Land”, which brings together two concepts which shaped Domaine Treloar. That there is an ideal place for each person and that you will only achieve your dreams through hard work and determination.
A dry white wine made from Grenache gris 50%, Macabeu 30% and Carignan blanc 20%. The grapes are sourced from vines planted in 1955 and 1980 and are sustainably farmed. The soil is stony clay/limestone. Low yields and handpicked. No acidification, chaptelisation, enzymes or yeasts added. Fermented in barrel with wild yeasts to give complexity. Stirred on lees for 6 weeks. Unfined but filtered at bottling in the following spring.
