Torbreck - The Steading Barossa Valley 2018
Vinous Media: 93 Points
"Opaque ruby. Lush, dark berry and fruitcake scents are complemented by suggestions of candied flowers and backing spices. Sappy and focused on entry and then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering ripe blackberry, cherry and allspice flavors and a hint of cola. Closes very long and smooth, with slowly building tannins lending gentle grip."
Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points
"This blend colors neatly within Torbreck's lines of polish, ripeness and class. Plush plum and raspberry fruit are layered with notes of baking spice, flowers, warm stones and iodine. The fruit glides over the tongue while savory, herbal elements linger on the finish. It's a harmonious wine to last until 2028 at least."
Wine Advocate: 92 Points
"Ripe, round and supple, Torbreck's 2018 The Steading is foudre aged, so the oak signature is minimal. Mixed cherries and berries abound, mixing in hints of caramel, plus more savory notes of dried herbs, espresso and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, it's soft and easy to drink, but it has enough concentration to drink well for several more years."
