Torbreck Vintners Juveniles Grenache Mourvedre Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

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.

Winemaker's Notes

Bold and seductive, this youthful, unoaked blend encapsulates all that is great in natural, pure, unseasoned wine.

Its fragrance, intensity and energy are all reminiscent of fresh fermenting must, with ripe juicy flavours of blackberry, spiced cherries, minerals and Asian spices wrapped around a skeleton of fresh acidity and fine mineral laden tannins.

Soft and sensuous, this wine is frightfully drinkable already, but as with its predecessors will greatly recompense those who choose to give it a few years in the cellar.

"The owner of the Juveniles bar in Paris, Tim johnston, suggested that I make a wine for him. I decided that it should be a blend of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz from our ancient vines. I asked Tim's daughter Carolyn, to design a separate label for this cuvee, as her paintings adorn the walls of her fathers wine bar" - David Powell
