Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994, when he was able to secure a contract for the supply of grapes from a run-down but ancient Shiraz vineyard. He named his wine 'Torbreck' after a forest in Scotland where he worked as a lumberjack.
David managed to raise enough money to share-farm the vineyard, a practice which involves paying the owner a percentage of the market rate for his grapes in return for totally managing the vineyard. This share-farming principle has enabled Torbreck to use fruit from the very best vineyards in the Barossa Valley, which is home to some of the most precious old vines in the world. The Torbreck endeavour is based around the classic Barossa Valley varietals of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, and a love for the wines of France's Rhone Valley. Their whites are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.
What to drink with... mature Cheddar.
Cheddar cheese is made all over the world as the poor old Somerset village wasn’t able to get a protected designation of origin for its cheese.
A Chardonnay will really hit the spot whether it’s from Burgundy or Chile or Champagne – the bubbles will cleanse your palate between mouthfuls. If you fancy something smooooth, then try our Chilean Merlot, our Italian pseudo Amarone, Nebbiolo or Villa Gresti, our claret from St Emilion. Stronger alternatives would be our Malvasia, Sherry or even Vodka.
