Deep garnet red with purple hues, the wines high-toned aromas of black cherries, five spice, creme de cassis and lavender are supported by a rich core of roasted earth, liquorice, saddle leather and spice. The palate offers a soft latent richness and silken-like texture with subtle notes of dark cherries, plum and spice- all neatly wound by a taught spine of acidity and ripe supple tannins.
Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
Torbreck is an Australian winery on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley at Marananga. Founded by David Powell in 1994, the famous vineyard was named after a forest in Scotland where he spent time as a lumberjack. He honed his oenological skills at Rockford, the celebrated Barossa winery.
Year after year David has refined the style of his wines, remaining faithful to his inspiration of the Rhône valley, perfecting his yield of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro. The aim was to build one of the finest wine estates in the world and his vision was accomplished when the winery was named one of the World’s top 100 Wine Estates by Robert Parker.
“Every now and then, in life and in wine, we are presented with unique opportunities to express ourselves and create something truly remarkable. When these rare opportunities arise, we need to capture, nurture and develop them so that their potential is fulfilled.”Craig Isbel, Senior Winemaker
