Torbreck

About Torbreck

Established in 1994 on the Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley in an appellation named Marananga, Torbreck is the brainchild of former lumberjack David Powell. A former lumberjack, he named the estate after a forest in Scotland. The estate's first release in 1997 gained magnificent praise. In 2002 they acquired their historic property in Lyndoch, and then in 2008, the estate was bought by Pete Knight. Today, with the prodigious stewardship of Ian Hongell, this estate has rapidly ascended into the Australian elite. 

Torbreck "has it all" - it has some of the finest terroirs in Barossa, a superstar winemaking team and multiple vineyards planted exclusively with vines well over 100 years old. To this day, Torbreck sources much of the fruit used to produce its incredible wines from selected farmers throughout the region - a continuation of David Powell's early belief in the concept of "shared farming". The team at Torbreck are highly involved in the farming regimes at their contractors' sites, but the belief that generational growers can coax the best out of their family terroirs is firmly held by Ian Hongell et al.

Torbreck Les Amis 2010 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (96+)

It's my opinion that the 2010 Les Amis is in a developmental trough at the moment, as it just wasn't quite as expressive and flamboyant as either the 2009 or recent vintages, despite being a terrific year. It's full-bodied, ripe and silky in texture, with gorgeous floral aromatics, raspberry fruit and hints of vanilla and cedar lurking in the background. Still youthful, it should drink well through 2030 if properly cellared.

Torbreck The Factor 2015 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

I'm a sucker for the complex floral and savory aromas on the nose of Torbreck's 2015 The Factor. It's 100% Shiraz aged in predominantly older oak and features notes of violets, hickory smoke, mint, blueberries and mocha. It's full-bodied but structured, with firm tannins and acids that give the palate shape and length. While nearly approachable now, it should age well for over a decade.

Torbreck The Laird 2015 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

Torbreck's 2015 The Laird boasts explosive aromas of Christmas spices, ripe plums, vanilla, hickory smoke and maple syrup. It's a big wine, loaded with fruit and oak, full-bodied, rich and velvety, adding hints of toasted coconut and cinnamon streusel on the long, almost dessert-like finish. For a more savory experience, age it a decade or so before pulling a cork.

Torbreck The Steading 2002 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

David Powell consistently excels with The Steading, an 8,000 case blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Shiraz. Aged 22 months in 300 liter hogsheads (foudres), it represents Australia’s version of Chateauneuf du Pape. The 2002 The Steading’s big, spicy, earthy nose reveals notions of cherry liqueur, licorice, pepper, dried Provencal herbs, raspberries, and leather. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, chewy, and heady, it is best drunk during its first 7-8 years of life, although it will last a lot longer.
