Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles

Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles GSM 2017

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
Torbreck's Cuvee Juveniles is an unoaked blend of Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, that's proved enormously popular over the past decade. Bold and seductive, this 2017 Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles offers lively aromas of red berry fruits, dark plum and spice. A fresh, mid palate with a vivacity and energy that this blend always generates.

Ripe, juicy flavours of blackberry and cassis, spiced cherries, minerals and succulent blueberry fruit all balanced with fresh acidity and a fine gentle tannin structure. Soft and supple, this wine is drinking superbly but as with its predecessors will greatly recompense those who choose to give it a few years in the cellar.

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.
