Really nice wine. Lots of glycerin and sweet berry fruit - strawberries and fresh raspberries. Smooth tannins. Quite enjoyable, but given the cost one could argue that there is better bang for the buck. Though, I'm quite happy to be drinking this wine...

Almost opaque color. Pungent fruit bouquet. Strong pepper followed by dark berry flavors. Nicely integrated tannin backbone. Not really my style of winemaking, but given the right winter weather and hearty food, its an interesting occasional foray.

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.
