Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles GSM 2013

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
Torbreck continues to take advantage of dry-grown, old vines to make some of the Barossa's most demanded wines. Bold and seductive, Cuvee Juveniles is a youthful, unoaked blend that encapsulates all that is great in natural, pure, unseasoned wine. It displays ripe juicy flavours of blackberry, spiced cherries, minerals and Asian spices supported by fresh acidity and fine tannins. Soft and silky, Torbreck's Cuvee Juveniles is an incredibly easy drinking wine that offers plenty of pleasure in its youth.

"95 Points. Despite the name, this is a blend of old vine grapes (grenache, shiraz and mataro). Bright crimson-purple; the palate is full-bodied, but supple and smooth, plum, blackberry, cherry, spice and licorice all in the frame provided by the tannins."- James Halliday, Top Cellaring Selections, Wine Companion Magazine, May 2015.

"Bold and seductive, this youthful, unoaked blend encapsulates all that is great in natural, pure, unseasoned wine. Its fragrance, intensity and energy are all reminiscent of freshly fermenting must, with ripe juicy flavours of blackberry, spiced cherries, minerals and Asian spices wrapped around a skeleton of fresh acidity and fine mineral laden tannins. Soft and sensuous, this wine is frightfully drinkable already, but as with its predecessors will greatly recompense those who choose to give it a few years in the cellar." - Torbreck Wines.

David Powell started the iconic Torbreck in 1994 by offering to nurse back to health a number of neglected old vines he had found when he was working for Rockford.

This share-crop arrangement allowed Powell to make his first wine under the Torbreck label which was named after a forest in Scotland where he had worked as a lumberjack. The Torbreck wines are based on the classic Barossa varieties of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and also small quantities of Roussanne, Marsanne & Viognier.

Torbreck has an enviable collection of growers around the Barossa & Eden Valleys with vines aged from 10 years old (which would go into Woodcutters Shiraz) to 160 years old (Run Rig). The house style at Torbreck is a seamless balance of richness and finesse, the wines are always fresh and vibrant with underlying power and drive.

These are world class wines and a benchmark for the Barossa Valley.
