Torbreck The Pict

Torbreck has always pronounced a strong influence from French wine styles and varietals in our approach to wine making, and The Pict fervently displays these influences.

The wild, rugged and earthen aromas typically associated with the Bandol region of France provide the basis for this powerful single vineyard Mataro.Fresh soil, tree bark, cassis and leather dominate the nose with hints of spice, chocolate and drying meats evolving with time in the glass.The expansive palate is rich and dense with a rustic core of earth, tar and black olive all tightly framed by the wines mineral strewn tannins.Although beautifully balanced in its youth, The Pict has the constitution and structure to continually evolve for many years to come.
