The melding of the three traditional Barossa varieties creates a tremendously complex and rewarding wine. The Grenache and Mataro are from old bush vines that are pruned in the traditional ‘goblet’ style to a limited number of buds, reducing yields and promoting flavour and colour concentration. Only the free run component of the Shiraz is used in the blend to allow the Grenache identity to shine through.

Professional Reviews

92/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2001 The Steading is an ageworthy effort. Made from the same blend as the Juveniles, but aged 18 months in old French and American hogsheads (300 liter barrels), it exhibits a deep plum/garnet color in addition to a big, spice-driven nose of cinnamon, pepper, soy, damp earth, dried herbs, and red as well as black fruits. Ripe, full-bodied, and complex, it is a French-styled red that should drink well for a decade.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



91/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe and distinctive, a generous mouthful of peppery blackberry, wild raspberry, mossy, mushroomy flavors all in wild profusion. It all lasts beautifully on the finish. An exciting wine with real personality. Grenache, Mataro (Mourvèdre) and Shiraz.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jul 31 2003



88/100
Wine Companion
The colour is slightly dull, but not distressingly so; earthy, spicy, savoury fruit aromas are followed by a medium-bodied palate with typical, slightly jammy fruit; not in the same class as the other top-flight wines from Torbreck, but good by any other standard.
, James Halliday Issue: Feb 2003
