This has long been David Powell's favourite within the Torbreck portfolio, an impressive wine due to the remarkable old bush vines, some more than a century old, that survived devastation in the 1980s and remained unaffected by phylloxera.

The combining of these traditional Barossa grape varieties (60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Mataro, the Australian Mourvèdre) creates a complex, well-structured whole, with the three components contributing their singular characteristics.
