Torbreck Juveniles 2013


SKU 9333343002464


Bold and seductive, this youthful, unoaked blend encapsulates all that is great in a pure, unseasoned wine. Its fragrance, intensity and energy are all reminiscent of freshly fermenting must, with ripe juicy flavours of blackberry and plums, spiced cherries, minerals and melted licorice wrapped around a skeleton of fresh acidity and fine soft gripping 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.

Wine AdvocateMedium garnet colored, the 2013 Juveniles is scented of cherry preserves, red currant jelly and Szechuan pepper with a Chinese five spice undercurrent. Full-bodied and powerful in the mouth, the opulent kirsch and spice flavors are supported by chewy tannins and lively acid, finishing long, but just a tad hot.
