Torbreck The Steading Blanc
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.
Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley, The Steading Blanc is a traditional Rhone blend, sourced entirely from our Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road.
"A blend of 41% Marsanne, 39% Viognier and 20% Roussanne, Torbreck's 2019 The Steading Blanc comes entirely from the company's Descendent Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road, planted in 1994. The Marsanne and Viognier are barrel fermented and matured in a mix of new and used oak, while the Roussanne is made and aged in stainless steel. The result is a bit of a mashup, with scents of scorched citrus zest joining notes of apricots and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied, it boasts an attractive, silky texture in the mouth, with no sense of oiliness or over-extracted phenolics, just a lively, harmonious finish." 91 pts, Joe Czerwinski, WA
