Pete Kight, owner of Torbreck, has long felt a strong commitment to Australia’s Barossa region, as well as its potential for top-quality wines. As of 2008, Kight’s dream finally came to life. For the past 13 years, Torbreck has crafted high-quality wines from estate-grown fruit, focused mostly on the three main varieties of France’s Rhône Valley: Shiraz (Syrah), Grenach, and Mourvèdre.
Torbreck’s wines are crafted with mineral intervention and are built to last for years in the cellar. As their website clearly states, provenance is everything to the estate. Wines from Torbreck are concentrated, fruit forward, and laden with flavor. While beautiful in their youth, these rich and powerful wines are built to withstand the test of time – though we wouldn’t blame you for snagging a few and cracking into one or two now for good measure.
