Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles GSM 2014

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
Torbreck's 'Cuvee Juveniles' is an unoaked blend of Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, the 2014 vintage is beginning to show its full potential; ripe juicy flavours of blackberry, spiced cherries, minerals and Asian spices supported by fresh acidity and fine tannins. Soft and silky, this is a perfect drink-now proposition.

"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.

Reviews of the 2013 vintage:

"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.

"Originally made for Juveniles bistro, Paris, Torbreck provides an exuberant, unoaked expression of the Barossa's signature blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvedre). Despite its hefty 15-per-cent alcohol, Juveniles sits bright, fresh and fruity on the palate, with little sign of alcoholic heat. Grenache (60 per cent of the blend) leads the aroma, musk-like flavour and liveliness of the palate. Shiraz adds body and soft tannins to the blend, while Mataro contributes spice, savour and tannic grip to a remarkably fruity, buoyant finish." - Chris Shanahan, ChrisShanahan.com.

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.
