Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles
This fruit-driven puppy is easy to knock back, with just a hint of espresso adding a savory edge to the finish.
- Barossa Valley, Australia
Cuvée Juveniles was created as a ‘Cote Du Rhone’ inspired bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz from mostly old, unirrigated vineyards. These varieties are the cornerstone of the Barossa Valley and are intrinsic in the wines that are so easily appreciated around the world and often referred to as GSM blends by sommeliers and consumers alike.
"Bold and seductive, this youthful, unoaked blend encapsulates all that is great in a pure, unseasoned wine. A lively, vibrant aroma of blackberry, violet and spice. A full, rich mid palate with a vivacity and energy that this blend always generates. Ripe, savoury flavours of dark berry fruit and cassis, spiced cherries, minerals and succulent blueberry fruit all balanced with fresh acidity and a fine gentle tannin structure. Dense and vibrant, this wine is drinking superbly but, as with its predecessors, it will greatly reward those who choose to give it a few years in the cellar." Torbreck
"All tank-aged, the 2017 Cuvee Juveniles is a blend of 61% Grenache, 28% Mataro and 11% Shiraz. It features delicate strawberry aromas, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that’s creamy and lush. This fruit-driven puppy is easy to knock back, with just a hint of espresso adding a savory edge to the finish." 90/100, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
