"Tahi" 2012, 60% Shiraz, 25% Mourvèdre, 15% Grenache. Here's a wine that transforms the GSM model into something far more stylish than it has ever been before. Just starting to hit its prime now, this is a meaty wine with a wild streak and slightly more palate volume and richness than the Secret and Motus. But the tannin is still emphatic and persistent and makes me think this has at least a decade ahead of it. It's only just 14% but the extract and liveliness on the palate makes it seem less Rhône than Bordeaux. It's a cliché, but like all the Treloar wines, the Tahi is a testament to terroir and every glass pulls you inextricably into the world of Roussillon and its rocky earth in the cool shade of the Pyrenees. An amazing wine of power, flavour, and finesse. Drink now to 2030. Scored 92 out of 100 by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "full-bodied and firmly built but generous."
Post-arrival price will be: $48.30. TODAY'S 15% PRE-DEPARTURE OFFER: $42 per bottle in any dozen($46 if less than 12 bottles ordered).
