Jancis Robinson | Rating: 16This 'basic' wine from 10 to 35 year-old vines seems pretty good value to me. Sweet nose and very glossy fruit ? not unlike a particularly snazzy Languedoc Syrah.Drink Dates: 2005-2007Author: Jancis Robinson
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.
