Tasting Notes

WA99

The estate’s flagship cuvee is the virtually perfect 2003 Run Rig. Made from 8 separate Barossa vineyards (ranging in age from 94 to 158 years), it is primarily Shiraz with 4-5% co-fermented Viognier included in the blend. The wine was aged in French oak of which 60% is new. The sensational, inky/purple-tinged 2003 exhibits a stunningly sweet nose of blackberries, blueberries, litchi nuts, smoked meats, and a hint of apricots. Elegant yet super-powerful, rich, concentrated, and long, it is a tour de force in winemaking as well as a modern classic example of Barossa Shiraz. It should drink well for 20-25 years.

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.
