Torbreck Cuvée Juveniles was created as a ‘Côtes-du-Rhône’ inspired bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache, Mataro (Mourvèdre) 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.
A perennial favourite, Grenache from old vines shows it ability to exhibit lifted florals, red juicy fruit characters such as wild cherry, raspberry and pomegranate. The palate has delicious texture and long acidity balancing a freshness from savoury Mataro and bolder Shiraz components.
Since 1994 Torbreck has been committed to creating exceptional Rhône style red and white wines reflecting the very best vineyards in Australia’s famous Barossa Valley. They believe the Barossa is the most exciting place to make wine in the world, with its gentle Mediterranean climate and 175 years of Silesian and English commitment to winemaking and grape-growing. There is a European sense of tradition in the area that means vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhône varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvédre – still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavour. Torbreck pays tribute to these vineyards with minimal intervention, creating wines of richness, structure and length that age gracefully.
