Winery: The Steading is perhaps the most important wine within the Torbreck portfolio, the one that best exemplifies what Torbreck is all about. It is sourced from vines that survived the vine-pull scheme in the early 1980s, cultivated on their own roots that were unaffected by phylloxera. It also best explains the serendipitous discovery of some withered ancient vines, some well over a century old, that have been carefully nurtured back to life. Protecting and nurturing the old vine resources of the Barossa Valley is paramount to Torbreck and this wine, more than any other is an indication of what is possible from the now protected ancient Barossa cultivars - Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz.
On the nose: Vibrant aromas of violet, star anise hints of violet and spice
On the palate: The 2015 Steading has a fragrancy, purity of fruit, mid palate concentration and savoury tannin profile making it an exemplary wine. Barossa cultivars of old vine Grenache, Shiraz & Mataro. An impressive array of underlying fruit flavours. Silky, succulent dark fruits, black olive, savoury earth, liquorice and Asian spice. These complex yet elegant flavours are all neatly interwoven with a perfect balance of acidity and supple, silky tannins.
Cellaring:The 2015 Steading will continue to develop with time in the cellar & shall provide those with patience, great enjoyment for many years to come.
