More information on wine critics and ratings

He's been in Paris more than twenty years and is a passionate promoter of the Rhone Valley and it's wines, particularly individualist, quality minded producers.

Torbreck founder David Powell hit it off with Tim over the years, eventually making a wine exclusively for his wine bar in 1999. In keeping with Tim and David's love of Rhone Valley varietals and the fact that they are equally at home in the Barossa, the blend constitutes old-vine Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz and was elevaged entirely in stainless steel.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2019)
This is a classy, harmonious bottling made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It's full of plump plum, black currant, mint, violet, tobacco and iodine flavors. The tannins are herbal, chalky and powerful, and the mouthfeel is silky. Drink now-2028.

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2019)
The nose is all grenache-driven raspberry and blueberry with a gently herbal edge. The palate has a plush, smooth-honed and gently pithy red-fruit core that holds a fresh, refined finish. A blend of 72% grenache, 23% mataro and 5% shiraz.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2018)
Deep ruby. Lively black raspberry and cherry preserve scents are sharpened by a spicy suggestion on cracked pepper. Silky and round on the palate, offering juicy red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors that show very good depth and appealing sweetness. Emphatically fruity in style, finishing with subtle tannic grip and resonating blue fruit character.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2018)
Supple and velvety, with wave after wave of pomegranate, kirsch and maraschino cherry flavors that have accents of red licorice, green tea and black walnut and lingering milk chocolate notes. Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. Drink now through 2030.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2018)
The unoaked 2018 Cuvee Juveniles is a blend of 67% Grenache, 23% Mataro and 10% Shiraz. It's ripe and full, verging on jammy, with black cherry and black olive aromas and flavors, supple tannins and a mouthwatering finish.

James Halliday (JH) : 94 Points (2014)
Step back: this is how you do it. Licorice, raspberry, earth and dried spice notes are in cahoots with one another, the ambition simple: to provide pure drinking pleasure. The aroma, the mouthfeel, the flavour: it's all spot on. 85% grenache, 8% shiraz, 7% mataro.

If any one wine we produce most exemplifies what Torbreck is, then it's this wine, our ode to the great old vines, planted at the turn of last century, that survived the vine-pull scheme of the 1980's.

It comes as no surprise to find that non-traditional Barossan varieties such as Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier, have adapted as well to their new home as their red counterparts have done over the last century or so. Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley, The Steading Blanc is a traditional Rhone blend, sourced entirely from Torbreck’s Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road.
