Pleasure in a bottle: Phuket’s pioneering resort introduces its own five-star blend – Twinpalms Phuket, Thailand’s most innovative and exciting island resort has teamed up with acclaimed Chilean wine producer Domus Aurea to create its own signature blend, Teorema.
Deciding the time was ripe for something new, Twinpalms General Manager Olivier Gibaud, together with Phuket-based wine consultant Steven Roberto explored the idea of extending the resort’s unique five-star qualities into its wine offerings. In this, they found the perfect pairing with Domus Aurea of Chile, which has been at the forefront of the South American country’s winemaking revolution.
Homing in on a blend that reflects the best of a tropical island lifestyle and the rich, fertile foothills of Chile, Teorema emerged. This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley, aged in French cherry wood barrels, boasts the sensory characteristics of Domus wines, with round tannins as velvety and gorgeous as a Hermes, and a fresh nose full of floral notes. Featuring a stunning label designed by Chile’s celebrated artist Ben Lira, a limited quantity of only 750 bottles has been produced.
“Just as we hope for with every Twinpalms experience, Teorema is full of pleasant surprises,” says Mr Gibaud. “Everyone experiences it differently. We’ve found that Teorema simply never tastes the same, depending on where, with whom, when and how you enjoy it.”
Teorema is available for THB 5,500++ per bottle and THB 11,000++ per Magnum bottle at Twinpalms Phuket Resort and Catch Beach Club.
