Alcohol: 13%

Grape(s): Semillon

Localization: Barossa Valley, Barossa, South Australia, Australia

Tasting Notes: The natural acidity and medium body of the Semillon grape takes great pride in Barossa vineyards that are naturally suited to the region. A wine that shows lifted aromas of fresh citrus fruits and flowers along with kaffir lime perfumes. The palate is tangy with long acidity and cleansing to the finish. Either as a fresh young wine or aged for up to 12 years to reveal brioche and lemon curd pastry-like notes.

The Domain: Torbreck, founded in 1994 by David Powell, is situated at Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa. Since that time he has produced some of the world's finest 'Rhone varietal' wines, exclusively from Barossa fruit; the wine press in Europe, America, and Australia has acknowledged this. The overwhelming majority of his vines are dry-grown, nearly all are 80 - 125 years old and are tended and harvested by hand.

The wines have an extraordinary combination of power, intensity, complexity, and great finesse, and bearing in mind the age of the vines and the laughably low yields, no Torbreck wine could ever be accused of being heavy, cloying, or over-extracted.
