Australie - Barossa Valley

Domaine Torbreck 2016

€750 Flacon de 10cl

Take a journey into Australian wine country with this wonderfully delicious wine made exclusively from Syrah. The nose is divine with notes of jam, blackcurrant and blackberry, along with a slightly roasted character. This is a supple and fleshy wine in terms of mouthfeel, with flavours matching the fruitiness of the nose. It is silky, and peppery, and absolutely delicious to drink.

Winemaker

Pete Kight

Barossa Valley is a prestigious and internationally reputed region where the Syrah (or Shiraz) grape is king! David Powell, an expert producer of the variety, founded the Torbreck wine estate in 1994. Vintage on vintage, he refines the profile of his wines, remaining faithful to the Rhône Valley style that originally inspired him. Torbreck is today considered as one of Barossa’s finest estates.
