We are delighted to offer a range of wines from Powell & Son, the superb new operation that is swiftly becoming a reference point for Barossa reds.


David Powell worked at Torbreck for thirty years before he left to establish Powell & Son with his son Callum. Drawing from one of the most impressive contact books in the business, David has been able to source premium fruit from some of the region’s greatest vineyards, including those he worked with at Torbreck. The pre-phylloxera vines are ungrafted and create beautifully pure fruit which, coupled with David’s expertise and Callum's fresh thinking, results in truly stunning wines.


While David has superb Aussie credentials, he also has his eye firmly cast on the Old World. He name drops the likes of Gérard and Jean-Louis Chave (Callum is currently working at Chave) and Alvaro Palacios as friends and inspirations, and his Shiraz and Grenache pay homage to Rhône and Priorat. He is also vocal about his desire to mirror Europe's very best domaines: “I want to create the Domaine de la Romanée Conti of Barossa”. In fact, David’s decision to leave Torbreck was fuelled by his desire to go back to being hands on with his wine making. “I loved Torbreck, but by the end of my time there I felt like the CEO in a large company. I’m very happy to be back to making wines as a vigneron”.


Torbreck’s loss is every wine lovers’ gain. We tasted the wines in the office in early October 2017 and were astounded. Displaying wonderful freshness and purity, they clearly establish the Eden Valley as an area to watch for Shiraz.
