|Grapes||Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne|
|Country/Region||Australia, Barossa Valley|
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. It 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.
Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône
Valley, The Steading Blanc is a traditional Rhone blend, sourced entirely from
our Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road.
