Matured in a combination of stainless steel and large format French oak foudre.
Cuvée Juveniles was created as a ‘Cotes Du Rhone’ inspired bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz from mostly unirrigated old vine vineyards. Alongside these three Barossa cornerstones, Torbreck has planted two other traditional Rhone varieties: Counoise and Carignan. These give savoury and spicy notes to the blend, and add a level of complexity, depth and bottle ageing potential. A wine that will enthuse the Francophile yet still win over Barossa fans.
A perennial favourite, Grenache from old vines shows its ability to exhibit lifted florals, red juicy fruit characters such as wild cherry, raspberry and pomegranate. The palate has delicious texture and long acidity balancing a freshness from savoury Mataro and bolder Shiraz components. Serve with an array of cuisines including spicy dishes at or below 16 degrees Celsius.
