Torbreck Steading Blanc 2018
Torbreck Steading Blanc has fragrant aromas of acacia flowers, roasted nuts and buttered citrus are neatly balanced with underlying hints of bees wax and minerality. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely creaminess that lends texture to the opulent fruit, it is invigorated by a lively line of acid and a long, spicy finish. The Steading Blanc is a seamless wine with a silken texture that can be enjoyed with a rich crustacean based sauce and anything from the sea.
Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral-scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley, The Steading - Blanc is sourced entirely from the Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road first planted in 1994 on the Torbreck estate. The ripe, fleshy, barrel fermented Viognier (20%) and Marsanne (30%) give the palate a textural edge whilst the Roussanne (50%) contributes it’s more flinty and austere personality.
An above average winter rainfall led into a below average spring and summer rainfall, producing small bunches and small berries, leading to a reduced yield. Quality was certainly high, particular amongst our red varieties of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro. 2018 wines will be remembered for their impressive colour, structure and longevity
