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.

More information on wine critics and ratings

Inspired by the rich, luscious & mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley the Steading Blanc is sourced entirely from our Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road.
Fragrant aromas of acacia flowers, roasted nuts and buttered citrus are neatly balanced with underlying hints of bees wax, minerals, chalk and fino.

The ripe, fleshy barrel fermented Viognier and Marsanne gives the palate extraordinary richness whilst the Roussanne contributes it’s more flinty and austere personality.

The result is a seamless wine with a silken texture that can be enjoyed with anything from the sea, particularly with a rich crustacean based sauce.

Robert Parker (RP) : 89+ Points (2015)
A blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier, the 2015 The Steading Blanc is scented of apricot, allspice and jasmine with underlying notes of honeyed pears and lemongrass. Medium-bodied, it possesses and pleasant oiliness to the texture and plenty of baking spice and stone fruit flavors, finishing with some anise and citrus peel notes coming through. This style tends to age well and it's worth putting a few bottles away for 4-5 years.

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.
