Every now and then, in life and in wine, we are presented with unique opportunities to express ourselves and create something truly remarkable.
The RunRig has drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant & tautly structured wines produced from the slopes of the Northern Rhône Valley's Appellation of Côte Rôtie.
Dave Powell has always pronounced a strong influence from French wine styles and varietals in his approach to wine making, and The Pict fervently displays these influences.
Sourced from the devigorated soils of western Seppeltsfield, Les Amis is a testament to what only the most fastidious farming can achieve - purity, intensity and finesse.
Our homage to the great old Shiraz vines of the Barossa Valley and the growers who painstakingly tend and nurture them each year.
This single vineyard wine, located next to our winery block was planted by Dave Powell in 1994 with cuttings off old RunRig vineyards - some of the oldest genetic material in Australia and the World.
For all the Rhône Valley comparisons that the Torbreck wines have drawn over the years, it is The Celts that best represents this style.
Sourced from a single plot of Shiraz nestled into the eastern slope of Mt. McKenzie, this wine retains the cooler edge and tighter structure that the great wines made from Eden Valley are famed.
Its dense color is accompanied by a fragrant bouquet comprising blackberry, pepper and licorice aromas, and a rich, silky mouth feel.
The name Woodcutter's stems from when David Powell spent several years working in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack or woodcutter in the Torbreck forest.
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.
Juveniles is a 'cult' Parisian wine bar run by eningmatic ex-pat Englishman, Tim Johnston.
Due to our success in co-fermenting shiraz and viognier, we thought it would be interesting (and fun) to co-ferment the skins from roussanne with shiraz.
Natural Wine Project
A true expression of Grenache, the fruit was selected from Dave's organically grown vineyard and the must was fermented without any addition of yeast, acid, or nutrients.
Ever since planting Viognier, Dave has wanted to make a wine with similar distinction and purity to those of Condrieu.
The Steading BLANC
Inspired by the rich, luscious & mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley, Torbreck Steading Blanc is sourced entirely from our Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road.
Fashioned with the savoury, food friendly dry whites of Southern France in mind, the Woodcutter's Semillon is the ideal tonic after a long day in the vineyard...
Following the success of our estate grown The Steading Blanc and in keeping with our Rhône influenced wine styles, the newly released Woodcutter's Roussanne Viognier Marsanne is wonderfully lifted, floral and fragrant.
Torbreck Saignée is unashamedly modeled after the fabulously rich, gloriously scented and bone dry Rosés of Provence.
A sweet wine at Torbreck was always going to be something slightly different and we've been tinkering away at it since 2001.
Mataro can be tough, angular, insipid and lifeless. However, patience is rewarded with dense, wild and completely rounded wines made from ripe fruit.
A wine almost Burgundian in appearance, flamboyant on the nose and a light, earthy and an effortlessly drinkable pallet.
The Fish's Shiraz
The Fish's Shiraz, is named after Simon "Fish" Fisher who worked at our cellar door. His dry sense of humour and passion for wine endeared him to Torbreck staff and customers alike, until his unfortunate early passing in 2008.
THE HIGHLAND FLING
The 2010 Highland Fling is inky black, pure and intense. Fruit driven, lifted aromatics of
dark blackberries and cassis are perfectly complemented by the wonderful scents of the
wood aged brandy spirit.
