"A Grenache, Mataro (Mourvèdre) and Shiraz blend, the medium garnet colored 2013 The Steading has a maturing nose of kirsch, baked raspberries and dried mulberries with an earth, garrigue and leather undercurrent plus a waft of spice box. The full-bodied palate is soft, velvety and open-knit with tons of seductive red berries preserves flavors leading to a 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.
