"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."

Grenache
Shiraz
Mataro

The Steading is composed from the traditional Barossa cultivars of Grenache, Shiraz & Mataro. It has long been a favorite wine within the Torbreck stable because of the old, gnarled ‘bush vines’ that produce its core. Each of the individual blocks are de-stemmed separately into both wooden & concrete open top fermenters where the juice is gently pumped over the skins twice a day for 6-7 days. After basket pressing the wine is gravity fed into underground cement vats where it naturally settles and is later racked into older French Hogsheads. Following 24 months maturation the wine is assembled and bottled without the use of fining or filtration.
