The Steading exemplifies Torbreck’s desire to nuruture and preserve their ancient vines. It is sourced from Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz vines that survived the worldwide phylloxera outbreak of the 1880s, and a century later, the vine-pull scheme in the Barossa in the 1980s.

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. Enjoy with a variety of barbecued red meats.

    Description

    Since it was founded in 1994 Torbreck has been on a quest to build one of the finest wine estates in the world. Today their vision pays homage to the vineyards of the Barossa Valley, home to some of the oldest vines on the planet. There is a European sense of tradition at Torbreck that means vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, 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.

    The newest release, the 2019 The Steading, offers restrained aromatics of mixed berries and cherries interlaced with hints of savory herbs. If it lacks the ripeness and richness of the 2018, it's more elegant and perhaps more complex, with those herbal striations adding silky textural elements to the medium to full-bodied palate. Gentle tannins linger on the finish.
