Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles GMS 2020
The 2021 summer growing season was mild, with even and cool daily temperatures throughout. Enhanced by good rains provided during the winter and spring of 2020. Torbreck vineyards grew wonderful canopies and developed well-formed grape bunches. As a result of this long flavour development cycle in the vineyard, 2021’s signature is wines of high aromatic lift with densely coloured tints and exceptional balance.
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.
