($150; 100% mataro) Opaque purple. Pungent bouquet of ripe cherry, cassis and plum, with anise and musky floral qualities adding complexity. Broad, concentrated dark fruit flavors are complemented by smoked meat and black cardamom, with chunky tannins gaining strength with air. Sweet and impressively focused on the finish, where the fruit sucks up the tannins and carries on impressively. Plenty of structure here, but the fruit appears even stronger.

About This Producer


Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994. Although located in Australia's Barossa Valley, the name comes from a forest in Scotland where Powell previously worked as a lumberjack before becoming a winemaker. Torbreck's production is centered around the classic Barossa Valley varieties of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre), and the winemaking philosophy is based on David's love for the wines of France's Rhone Valley. Along with many intensely flavored red wines blended from old-vine Shiraz and Grenache, Torbreck also produces white wines from Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne.
