Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

($90) Saturated purple- red. Pedigreed Barossa shiraz nose of rare intensity and opulence: heady, spicy cassis and raspberry fruit notes, tar and leather, given the full treatment of smoky vanillin, chocolatey oak. Remarkably smooth and silky for a wine of such concentration and weight. Explosive and exceptionally long on the finish, with flavors of cassis, dark cherry, molasses and plum. At once voluptuous and refined; a wine with great balance and potential.

About This Producer


Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994. Although located in Australia's Barossa Valley, the name comes from a forest in Scotland where Powell previously worked as a lumberjack before becoming a winemaker. Torbreck's production is centered around the classic Barossa Valley varieties of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre), and the winemaking philosophy is based on David's love for the wines of France's Rhone Valley. Along with many intensely flavored red wines blended from old-vine Shiraz and Grenache, Torbreck also produces white wines from Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne.
