Torbreck The Steading has a fragrancy, purity of fruit, mid-palate concentration and savoury tannin profile that makes it a favourite amongst the Torbreck team. Vibrant aromas of red currant, cherry, pomegranate, violet, star anise and spice all unfold to reveal an impressive array of underlying fruit flavours. Silky, dark red fruits, black olive, savoury earth, liquorice and Asian spices. These complex yet elegant flavours are all neatly interwoven with a perfect balance of acidity and supple, silky tannins. The Steading will continue to develop with time in the cellar, and provide those with patience great enjoyment well into the next decade.
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.
