Torbreck Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Cuvée Juveniles 2004
A noteworthy buy is the 2004 Juveniles, which represents Torbreck’s version of a Barossa Valley Cotes du Rhone on steroids. A 6,000-case, tank-fermented and aged blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 20% Shiraz, it exhibits peppery, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit, kirsch liqueur, and spice box aromas. A sexy, heady wine with loads of glycerin, medium to full body, a silky texture, and a meaty, long finish, it should drink well for 2-4 years. David Powell, unquestionably one of the world’s finest wine producers, has an uncanny ability to discover old vine Barossa vineyards, and then secure long term contracts for their fruit. It is amazing that such high quality sources have not already been plucked by Australia’s giant wine corporations. Torbreck’s wines continue to get better and better, combining the old vine ripe fruit of Barossa with a European sensitivity to elegance and balance. The finest wines in this portfolio are pricy, but David Powell delivers some remarkable reds and whites at prices that are more than fair for the quality in the bottle.
Amarone feeling.silky tannins,silky texture.sweet on the palate and black currant,spices nose.
Quite a pleasant bouquent of ripe fruits. On the palate a generous serving of earthiness and sweet blackberry with hints of spices - anise and sandalwood. Tannins were silky. The only downside was the residual sweetness - a rather syruppy wine. Not my cup of tea.
