($85; 100% shiraz Bright medium ruby. Dark raspberry, plum, fruitcake, tar and molasses on the nose. Juicy, tightly wound and very firmly built; the dark berry and fruitcake fla vors began a bit ungiving but showed increasing sweetness in the glass. Finishes firm and quite fresh, with impressive nutty persistence.

Not what is was two years ago but still delicious - fruit is diminished and not as prominent but fine tannins remain but less harmonious - past peak but still a year or two of good drinking

Amazing, with blackberry, blueberry, expresso and a kind of roasted background. Well structured. A splendid shriaz from Barossa valley.

We popped this one to celebrate my 6 months off of chemo and clean blood work. This is just an extraordinary wine. The nose is a powerful blast of dark plums, blackberries, and black cherries. A wisp of smoke comes through in the end. The body is perfectly balanced. A rich combination of cassis, blackberries, blueberries, and sweet tannins make for one of the smoothest wines I've tasted. The finish is long (roughly 45+ seconds) with a beautiful layered effect. We felt so lucky to be celebrating such good news with such an incredible bottle of wine.

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.
