RP93 The Wine Advocate - "Medium garnet in color with a purple rim, the 2012 The Steading (a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro) has a beautifully open nose of kirsch, mulberries and black raspberries with white pepper, dusty earth and Chinese five spice suggestions. Full-bodied and yet wonderfully poised in the mouth, the silky tannins and refreshing acid support the generous flesh throughout the long, spicy finish. Rating: 93+"

Vibrant aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, and star anise all unfold to reveal an impressive array of underlying fruit flavors. Dense, succulent dark fruits with layers of licorice, plum, black olive, earth, white pepper and Asian spice. These complex yet elegant flavors are all neatly interwoven with a perfect balance of acidity and supple, silky tannins. The 2012 Steading will continue to develop with time in the cellar & shall provide those with patience, great enjoyment for many years to come.


The Steading is perhaps the most important wine within the Torbreck portfolio, the one that best exemplifies what Torbreck is all about. It is sourced from vines that survived the vine-pull scheme in the early 1980s, cultivated on their own roots that were unaffected by phylloxera. It also best explains the serendipitous discovery of some withered ancient vines, some well over a century old, that have been carefully nurtured back to life. Protecting and nurturing the old vine resources of the Barossa Valley is paramount to Torbreck and this wine, more than any other is an indication of what is possible from the now protected ancient Barossa cultivars - Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. The Steading is sourced from our own vineyard estates as well as from growers on a share-farming basis, totalling 45 different sources of fruit, all vinified separately and blended once their individual virtues have been assessed. The Steading’s generous and supple flavours combined with its silken texture are a rewarding and very versatile choice with all types of cuisine.
