Torbreck-The Steading-Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre-2002-1.5L

Producer: Torbreck
SKU: 564
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's
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.

93/100
The Wine Advocate
David Powell consistently excels with The Steading, an 8,000 case blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Shiraz. Aged 22 months in 300 liter hogsheads (foudres), it represents Australia's version of Chateauneuf du Pape. The 2002 The Steading's big, spicy, earthy nose reveals notions of cherry liqueur, licorice, pepper, dried Provencal herbs, raspberries, and leather. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, chewy, and heady, it is best drunk during its first 7-8 years of life, although it will last a lot longer.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



93/100
Wine Companion
Complex texture, structure and flavour; a melange of sweet tobacco, spice and fruits; sophisticated medium-bodied wine; fine, savoury tannins.
, James Halliday Issue: Jul 2004



89/100
Wine Spectator
Firm, with an earthy, gamy edge to the well-focused cherry and berry flavors, all lingering on the fine-grained, somewhat leathery finish. Grenache, Mataro (Mourvèdre) and Shiraz.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jun 15 2005



17/20
Jancis Robinson
Much more savoury than the Juveniles. Salty Syrah (not Shiraz) flavours seem to dominate. Soft and gentle on the palate and then a pretty tough finish for now.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2004-750mL

Vibrant purple red plum colour. The nose shows an abundance of juicy cassis and blackberry fruit with an undercurrent of cedar spice. Not a wine for the faint hearted, the palate shows incredible concentration with luscious mouth-coating tannins. Although a powerhouse, everything is in check with an excellent balance of fruit concentration, tannin and acid. Flavours of dark chocolate, plum, and black cherry are beautifully integrated with cedary oak. The palate is like the perfect wave, building in intensity towards an impressive long finish with great persistency.

Torbreck-Descendant-Shiraz Viognier-2003-750mL

The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier, which as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig. The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the velvety mouth feel with the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.
