The 2018 Torbreck The Steading is a shining example of the lofty heights that can be achieved from blending the ancient Barossa cultivars; Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. Sourced from Torbreck's own estate vineyards as well as from growers on a share-farming basis, The Steading has a total of 45 different sources of grapes, which are vinified separately and blended once their individual qualities have been assessed. The result is another generous and flavoursome example of this classic Barossa blend, with lovely freshness and silky mouthfeel delivering a superb drinking red wine.
This share-crop arrangement allowed Powell to make his first wine under the Torbreck label which was named after a forest in Scotland where he had worked as a lumberjack. The Torbreck wines are based on the classic Barossa varieties of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and also small quantities of Roussanne, Marsanne & Viognier.
Torbreck has an enviable collection of growers around the Barossa & Eden Valleys with vines aged from 10 years old (which would go into Woodcutters Shiraz) to 160 years old (The Run Rig). The house style at Torbreck is a seamless balance of richness and finesse, the wines are always fresh and vibrant with underlying power and drive.
These are world class red wines and a benchmark for the Barossa Valley.
