Bringing the forgotten practice of share farming back to the Barossa has secured for Torbreck a regular supply of fruit from some grand old vineyards. Les Amis is an exclusively Grenache wine, vinified from fruit grown to the southern facing Homes site at Seppeltsfield, established 1901. Vines stand only inches from the ground and grapes are painstakingly picked. Bunches are destemmed into a single cement vat for several days of ferment being basket pressed directly into new French oak barriques. After eighteen months, the best barrels are marked for inclusion into Les Amis, racked and assembled. The finished wine is left to settle before bottling without the use of fining or filtration.
Dense, saturated ruby/ purple hue. Delicate scents of Chinese five spice, smoke, white flowers and roasted herbs precede a dense, brooding core of black cherry, coal and scorched earth. The well delineated palate offers tremendous texture and combines glorious fruit purity with subtle complexities and savoury elegance. Multi dimensional and incredibly intricate, Les Amis finishes on a length of crisp acidity and beautifully ripe, polished tannins.
