2014 Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles GSM
Wine Companion (2014 Vintage) says
Step back: this is how you do it. Licorice, raspberry, earth and dried spice notes are in cahoots with one another, the ambition simple: to provide pure drinking pleasure. The aroma, the mouthfeel, the flavour: it's all spot on. 85% grenache, 8% shiraz, 7% mataro.Drink by 2025

Blend of grenache, shiraz and mataro, as it has long been. The guzzler for bistros, wine bars and your back deck. Choc-berry, choc-cherry scents, pretty, ripe, sweetish, just a sniff of herbs. Crossing Ts. Juicy, vibrant, plush, bright and gluggable feel in the palate. Dotting Is. Vibrant acidity keeps the wine perky through to the last chomp. It’s medium weight red full of fresh and frisky deliciousness. The best one in ages.2016 - 2020
Andrew Graham (2013 Vintage) says
This unwooded Grenache blend is all about fruit. About fermented grape juice and the joy of Grenache when it's fresh and young and juicy. Made with a bare minimum of oak and even a bare minimum of winemaking, it's a wine for drinking, not serious contemplation.
