Estate Notes

Torbreck, The Steading 1998 is in excellent condition for the year.

The Steading 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. It is sourced from historic cultivars on a share-farming basis, and the grapes are vinified separately and blended once their individual virtues have been assessed. The Steading’s generous and supple flavours combine with its silky texture which defines the Barossa. (Torbreck is named after a forest in Scotland where David Powell worked as a lumberjack.)

Reviews

"Smooth and generous, a velvety wine with layers of black cherry, blackberry, pepper and spice that linger lightly on the finish." Wine Spectator
