Torbreck The Steading Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2005 750ml, Barossa Valley
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 pts - Very deep garnet colour. A wonderfully opulent nose that recalls elements of both Chateauneuf du Pape and textbook Barossa: warm blackberries, moss, game, freshly cracked black pepper and five spice with a touch of dried Provence herbs. The medium+ level of acidity perfectly balances this wine's full body and the medium level of velvety tannins provides harmonious texture. Very, very long finish. Drink now - 2018. Tasted November 2008. - Jan 2009
James Halliday's Wine Companion - Ultra-fragrant, ultra-juicy aromas; a cupboard of spices join in on the palate; subtle tannins; southern Rh?ne-style. Date tasted 12 Aug 2007. Drink by 2013.
