Torbreck-The Steading-Grenache Shiraz Mataro-2002-750mL

Producer: Torbreck
SKU: 563
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.

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2002-750mL

The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.
