Winemaker Notes

Vibrant aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, and star anise all unfold to reveal an impressive array of underlying fruit flavors. Dense, succulent dark fruits with layers of licorice, plum, black olive, earth, white pepper and Asian spice. These complex yet elegant flavors are all neatly interwoven with a perfect balance of acidity and supple, silky tannins. The 2013 Steading will continue to develop with time in the cellar & shall provide those with patience, great enjoyment for many years to come.

Blend: 66% Grenache, 13% Shiraz, 21% Mataro.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A Grenache, Mataro (Mourvèdre) and Shiraz blend, the medium garnet colored 2013 The Steading has a maturing nose of kirsch, baked raspberries and dried mulberries with an earth, garrigue and leather undercurrent plus a waft of spice box. The full-bodied palate is soft, velvety and open-knit with tons of seductive red berries preserves flavors leading to a long spicy finish.

Torbreck, Australia
Torbreck Cellar Door Winery Image
Torbreck, founded in 1994 by David Powell, is situated at Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa. Since that time he has produced some of the world's finest 'Rhone varietal' wines, exclusively from Barossa fruit; this has been acknowledged by the wine press in Europe, America and Australia. The overwhelming majority of his vines are dry-grown, nearly all are 80 - 125 years old and are tended and harvested by hand.

The wines have an extraordinary combination of power, intesity, complexity and great finesse, and bearing in mind the age of the vines and the laughably low yields, no Torbreck wine could ever be accused of being heavy, cloying or over-extracted.

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds. While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.
