On 11 September 2001, they were living one block away from the World Trade Center. After seeing both planes crash into the buildings from a few hundred metres, they left their apartment with what they could carry. In the aftermath of that disaster, they lost their home, jobs and their right to live in the States.
The experience made them think about what really mattered in their life. They wanted a different environment for their children. They wanted to have more control over their direction and to spend our time working at something that truly motivates them. Enter wine…
Muscat d’Alexandrie (100%) from stony clay and limestone, 150-200m above sea level in the middle of the Aspres cru. Hand harvested. Fortified to 16.5% abv with 105 g/l of residual sugar.
Late-harvested, fortified sweet aperitif and/or dessert wine. It has a beautiful floral aroma and a rich honeyed palate with dried fruits and nuts. Treloar Muscat de Rivesaltes always aims to be less sugary and have more richness than others.
Try with roquefort or gorgonzola cheese, cashew nuts, dark chocolate or sorbets
