Tasting Notes

WA98+

Torbreck’s flagship is the 2005 Run Rig, a 97% Shiraz cuvee sourced from 120- to 160-year-old vines with 3% finished Viognier added before bottling. It spent 30 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it has a kinky, exotic bouquet of fresh road tar, smoke, lavender, black pepper, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, the wine is dense, packed, and unevolved. It will continue to open up over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2040 in the style of a Chapoutier Hermitage. If it develops as I think it will, it will be a candidate for perfection down the road.

WS95

Firm, focused, highly aromatic and packed with flavor, offering floral accents to the dense blackberry, cherry and mineral flavors that linger on the refined finish, where the grip needs cellaring to loosen. Shiraz and Viognier.

The Winery

Torbreck

Torbreck has been named on Robert Parker’s Top 100 Wine Estates and is one of the rarest, most expensive and exciting wineries revolutionizing the way the rest of the world reacts to Australian wine. Located in the Barossa valley, Torbreck takes its name from the forest in Scotland where the owner and founding winemaker, David Powell, was once a lumberjack. He developed a passion for wine as he worked with old Shiraz vines in 1992, which led him to establish Torbreck in 1994. Powell accessed sufficient capital through share-farming and pursued his passion. These Rhone inspired wines have received the big scores and praise from every important wine critic.
