Torbreck The Steading 2018
Since 1994 Torbreck have been committed to creating Rhone style wines reflecting the very best vineyards in the Barossa valley. Wines such as The Laird, Runrig & The Struie are among the very finest red wines produced anywhere in Australia, if not the world.
If any one Torbreck wine most exemplifies what Torbreck is, then it's this wine, their ode to cuttings brought back from James Busby’s 1831-2 trip to France and Spain and planted on their own roots (due to the absence of phylloxera in the Barossa Valley) these vineyards are some of the most precious in the world. There are about 45 different parcels of fruit that compose The Steading which are all fermented and matured separately , being brought together only at blending where their individuality is assessed prior to the composition of the final blend.
The varieties Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz all stand in their own right. However, in blending, their strengths create a complex wine of solid earthy structure.
