Description

Torbreck The Steading is traditional Barossa GSM blend, that is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro.

Torbreck Vintners was founded in 1994 by David Powell and is located at Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley. It is named after a forest situated just south of Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland. The roots go back to 1992 when Powell, who was then working at Rockford, began to discover and clean up a few sections of dry-grown old vines, so that he could buy the fruit for his own wine. The first wine made under the Torbreck label was during the 1995 vintage, with the finished wines released in 1997. Torbreck was acquired by Pete Knight in 2008 and the senior winemaker is currently Ian Hongell.

Torbreck wines are made in a style emulating those of the Rhone Valley and are made from various grapes including red grapes Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro as well as white grapes Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne. The overwhelming majority of the vines that the wines are made from are dry-grown, nearly all are 80 – 125 years old and they are tended and harvested by hand.

Torbreck The Steading 2017 is made from a blend of Grenache (59%), Shiraz (25%) and Mataro (23%) from very old (on pre-phylloxera rootstock that survived the vine-pull scheme of the 1980s), from a selection of plots in the Marananga, Greenock, Moppa, Seppeltsfield, Gomersal and Ebenezer regions. Each of the individual blocks are vinified separately in both wooden and concrete open top fermenters with a gentle pumping over twice a day for 6 to 7 days. The wine is then basket pressed the wine allowed to flow under gravity to underground concrete. The wine is then later racked into used French hogsheads where malolactic fermentation takes place. After 20 months maturation on the fine lees the wine parcels are blended and bottled without fining or filtration.

‘Steading’ is a Scots word meaning a group of farm buildings.
