Cuvée Juveniles was created as a 'Cote Du Rhone' inspired bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz from mostly old, unirrigated vineyards. These varieties are the cornerstone of The Barossa Valley and are intrinsic in the wines that are so easily appreciated around the world and often referred to as GSM blends by sommeliers and consumers alike. The wines hallmark is its freshness due to no oak ageing and as the name describes it is a wine best drunk in its youth, poured by the glass at your favourite restaurant.

Torbreck's most delicious offerings come, in this reviewer's opinion, not from its Shiraz-dominant wines but from its Grenache, which, and in this case, makes up 61% of the blend. It leads with tangy rhubarb, red berry, orange zest and strawberry leaf, with earthy undertones like cumin, coffee and meat, which all flow seamlessly onto a palate of silky, pristine fruit, crunchy acidity and savory spice. This is polished and approachable but also complex and focused.

Shows plenty of gusto to the wild berry, sarsaparilla and spice flavors, with clove and bay leaf accents lingering. A juicy frame of tannins firms up on the finish. Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. Drink now through 2033. 128 cases imported.

All tank-aged, the 2017 Cuvee Juveniles is a blend of 61% Grenache, 28% Mataro and 11% Shiraz. It features delicate strawberry aromas, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that's creamy and lush. This fruit-driven puppy is easy to knock back, with just a hint of espresso adding a savory edge to the finish.
