Palate Profile

The wine is a result of the serendipitous discovery of small remnant patches of withered ancient vines, some well over a century old, that have been carefully nurtured back to life. The protection of this old vine resource of the Barossa Valley is central to the Torbreck story and this wine, more than any other, is an indication of what is possible from these historic cultivars.

The Steading is a collection of 45 different sources of fruit, some from our own vineyard estates as well as from growers on a share-farming basis. These precious grapes are vinified separately and blended once their individual virtues have been assessed.

The Steading’s generous and supple flavours combine with its silken texture in a wine that defines what is possible only in the Barossa.

Critic Awards

Deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is likewise bright, fresh, clean and attractive, loaded with blackberry flavours and intense palate flavour, medium to full-bodied and with a nice touch firmness to the tannin grip. This has real depth of flavour, richness, and plenty of oomph. Fruitsweet core is typical of the vintage.

Ripe, round and supple, Torbreck's 2018 The Steading is foudre aged, so the oak signature is minimal. Mixed cherries and berries abound, mixing in hints of caramel, plus more savory notes of dried herbs, espresso and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, it's soft and easy to drink, but it has enough concentration to drink well for several more years.

This blend colors neatly within Torbreck's lines of polish, ripeness and class. Plush plum and raspberry fruit are layered with notes of baking spice, flowers, warm stones and iodine. The fruit glides over the tongue while savory, herbal elements linger on the finish. It's a harmonious wine to last until 2028 at least.

A rich and decadent red with roasted meat and plums with an earthy undertone. Bark. Some cooked fruit. Full and pepper at the finish. Soft and round tannined. Juicy. 53% grenache, 28% shiraz and 19% mataro.
