Torbreck is on a quest to become one of the world's great wine marques. A critical part of this journey is remaining unwaveringly true to our core vision and not being diverted by trends and fashions. Provenance is everything to us. We believe the Barossa is the most exciting place to make wine in the world, with its gentle Mediterranean climate and 175 years of Silesian and English commitment to winemaking and grape-growing. There is a European sense of tradition here that means vines planted in the 1840s - many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavor. Ratings & Reviews 97 Points Joe Czerwinski Wine Advocate 03/29/2018 There's no denying the power and concentration of Torbreck's 2013 The Laird. The fruit is impressive, the oak luxurious, the texture velvety, yet I can't help but wonder if it needs to spend that extra time in barrel. Complex notes of baking spices, licorice and pepper add nuance to the Christmas-cake flavors and somehow emerge savory on the long finish. It's a wonderful wine, but would I rather have three bottles of RunRig? Without question.
