The wines hallmark is its freshness due to old oak ageing and as the name describes it is a wine best drunk in its youth, poured by the glass at your favourite restaurant.
Cuvée Juveniles was created as a ‘Cotes Du Rhone’ inspired bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache & Mataro (Mourvedre) from mostly unirrigated old vine vineyards.
Alongside these three Barossa cornerstones, Torbreck has planted two other traditional Rhone varieties: Counoise and Carignan. These give savoury and spicy notes to the blend, and add a level of complexity, depth and bottle ageing potential. A wine that will enthuse the Francophile yet still win over Barossa fans.
