Torbreck's The Steading GSM 2021 vintage has a deep crimson with garnet rim. Red fruits dominate the aromas such as cranberry, pomegranate, and red cherry with spice and earthy, savoury notes coming from Grenache and Mataro planted on mineral laden soils. Medium to full bodied with complexity and length across the palate. The firm tannins and driving acidity intertwine nicely against the lashings of red fruits and savoury complexity.

Winery & Vintage Info

On a highland farm in Scotland the collection of barns, stables and outbuildings is known as a Steading. Here in the Barossa Valley the varieties Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz all stand in their own right, however in blending, their strengths create a complex wine of solid, earthy structure. The fruit for the 2019 vintage Torbreck 'The Steading' is sourced from Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz vines that survived the worldwide phylloxera outbreak of the 1880s, and a century later, the vine-pull scheme in the Barossa in the 1980s.

The protection of this old vine resource of the Barossa Valley is central to the Torbreck story and this wine, more than any other, is an indication of what is possible from these historic cultivars.

The 2021 summer growing season was mild, with even and cool daily temperatures throughout. Enhanced by good rains provided during the winter and spring of 2020, our vineyards grew wonderful canopies and developed well-formed grape bunches. As a result of this long flavour development cycle in the vineyard, 2021’s signature is wines of high aromatic lift with densely coloured tints and exceptional balance.

20 months maturation on fine yeast lees in large 4500L French oak vats. Natural malolactic conversion occurred during time in barrel. 51% Grenache, 28% Shiraz
21% Mataro.
