Food Pairings for Torbreck Viognier Barossa Valley
Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994. The roots go back to 1992 when Dave, who was then working at Rockford, began to discover and clean up a few sections of dry-grown old vines. Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley the 2008 Viognier Marsanne Roussanne is sourced entirely from the Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road. Fragrant aromas of acacia flowers, roasted nuts and buttered citrus are neatly balanced with underlying hints of bees wax, minerals, chalk and fino. The ripe, fleshy barrel fermented Viognier and Marsanne gives the palate extraordinary richness whilst the Roussanne contributes it’s more flinty andaustere personality. The result is a seamless wine with a silken texture that can be enjoyed with anything from the sea, particularly with a rich crustacean based sauce.
