Torbreck believe that they source fruit for The Laird from the greatest vineyard on earth, owned by the Seppelt family, it commands a price for its harvest that's commensurate with the most prestigious first growths of the old world. There have only ever been four vintage releases, such is the strict criterion for quality. Two precious hectares of Shiraz named Gnadenfrei, yield a crop of small, concentrated berries, the envy of all growers and winemakers in Barossa Valley, only the most exceptional years are worthy of The Laird.
The distinguished old vines at Gnadenfrei were established 1958, on a gentle south facing slope on the eastern side of a ridge separating Seppeltsfield from Marananga, planted to very dark heavy clay loam over red friable clay soils. Grapes are all hand picked in separate passes a few days apart, gently de-stemmed into open top wooden and concrete fermenters. Batches are pumped over, twice daily over the course of a week, followed by a gentle basket press. Upon completion of ferments, components are filled to a luxurious selection of completely new, Dominique Laurent French oak barriques, for three years maturation under an ancient stone shed, to be bottled without fining or filtration. Alcohol 15.3%
TASTING NOTES
Garnet purple colour. Brooding, expansive nose, evolves as it breathes, brambles and kirsch, cinnamon stick and clove oak, tapenade and pastoral notes. A palate of power, elegance and grace, exquisitely textured, densely laden with ripe black fruit flavours and juicy savouryness, supported by fragrant French oak and a length of velvety tannins, before a long, opulent finish.

About Torbreck Wines
Low yielding, old and dry grown Barossa Valley vineyards are the cornerstone of Torbreck Vintners
Torbreck founder David Powell was immersed in the study of Economics at Adelaide University, when an uncle introduced him to wine. Young Dave realized that grapes could be more intriguing than numbers. He began spending more and more of his spare time in the Barossa Valley and during the winters, he availed himself of the opportunity to venture overseas to work harvests in California and Italy. He travelled throughout the famous wine regions of Europe and even spent time in Scotland as a lumberjack. This experience was instrumental in illuminating the unique attributes of the Barossa, at a time when others felt its heritage was past the sell by date. Torbreck»
