This has real depth of flavour, richness, and plenty of oomph.

On a highland farm in Scotland the collection of barns, stables and outbuildings is known as a Steading. Here in the Barossa Valley 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. It is sourced from Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz vines that survived the worldwide phylloxera outbreak of the 1880s, and a century later, the vine-pull scheme in the Barossa in the 1980s. The protection of this old vine resource of the Barossa Valley is central to the Torbreck story and this wine, more than any other, is an indication of what is possible from these historic cultivars.

"Deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is likewise bright, fresh, clean and attractive, loaded with blackberry flavours and intense palate flavour, medium to full-bodied and with a nice touch firmness to the tannin grip. This has real depth of flavour, richness, and plenty of oomph. Fruit- sweet core is typical of the vintage. (53% grenache, 28% shiraz, 19% mataro)" 94 pts, Huon Hooke, The Real Review


"The 2018s are from a more typically solar year, with greater muscularity and fleshy tannins. The combination of power and elegance which is the hallmark of Torbreck really comes out in these 2018s. 2018 was a perfect vintage, less stress relief on vines.
Medium bodied, spicy, smooth, rich and plump. Very pleasing - good Grenache in 2018, long bite of Mataro (Mourvèdre). Very pleasing, old bush vines 50-100 years for Grenache and Mataro. Dry farmed. Peak drinking 10-15 years for second flush of maturity."

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).
