Torbreck Steading Blanc 2018
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.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES
- 92 Points
This Rhône-style white offers tones of green pineapple rind, peach juice and flowers on the nose. The silky, rich mouthfeel is woven with honeyed fruit and a slightly spicy finish. It should age nicely until 2027, but is drinking well now, too.
