The Forebear

An enduring legacy of one of the Barossa Valley’s pioneering grape growing families’ lives on in this c.1850's planted shiraz vineyard.

The Forebear is named in honour of those who came before, our ancestors, whose custodianship, vision and values protected and preserved these heritage vines.

This single vineyard Shiraz is a testament to ancient soils and the sustainable viticultural practices of generations of Barossa farmers.

Medium to full weight with lifted red fruit aromatics, balanced by the nuanced influence of restrained French barrique maturation. A timeless addition to any collection, this Shiraz promises to gracefully evolve and captivate for many years to come.

Torbreck is the name of a forest near Inverness, Scotland and you’ll find more than a passing nod to the Celts in our wine naming conventions.
