Winemaker Notes

The Steading has a fragrance, purity of fruit, mid-palate concentration and savory tannin profile that makes it an exemplary wine. Vibrant aromas of violet, star anise and spice all unfold to reveal an impressive array of underlying fruit flavors. Silky, succulent dark fruits, black olive, savory earth, liquorice and Asian spice. These complex yet elegant flavors are all neatly interwoven with a perfect balance of acidity and supple, silky tannins. The Steading will continue to develop with time in the cellar, and provide those with patience great enjoyment well into the next decade.

Blend: 55% Grenache, 28% Shiraz, 17% Mataro

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TP 93
Tasting Panel

A rich and ripe blend of 55% Grenache, 28% Shiraz, and 17% Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) sourced from multiple vineyards containing 40- to 150-year-old vines. Aromas of rhubarb, anise, and dried violets are spiced and heady. Supple but dry black-tea tannins and a sprinkling of black pepper coat the palate, with walnut and plum skin on the far end of the mouth. Earthy, with well-integrated oak and fine acidity.

JS 92
James Suckling
This has an array of red fruits that roll through darker shades and into earthy territory. The palate is bright, fleshy and mouth-filling with plenty of flavor and approachable structure. A blend of grenache, shiraz and mataro.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Bold and dense, with black pepper, licorice and wild blackberry notes up front, thick, velvety tannins and emerging details of espresso and dark chocolate. Finds balance. The flavors are distinct and aromatic. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2028.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Torbreck's full-bodied 2016 The Steading is a sturdy Barossa blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Hints of smoke and grilled meat bring savory complexity to the cherry and raspberry fruit. Firm tannins suggest cellaring a year or two, but they also serve to define the fruit, imparting shape and length to the palate.

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.

Barossa Valley Wine

Barossa, Australia

View all products

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of 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. 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.
