Deep purple with an intensely plumy scent and hints of black pepper, raw beef, soy sauce, chalk, vanilla, and blackberry. Richly flavorful with excellent length, fine but slightly firm tannin, and unobtrusive acidity. Oak is well integrated. Very attractive chocolaty fruit on the finish. 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier from the Marananga vineyard. These ten year old vines were started with cuttings from an old RunRig vineyard (hence the wine?s name). The Shiraz and Viognier are co-fermented and then aged for 18 months in two and a half year old French oak (when new these barrels were used for the RunRig). This wine is beginning to shut down ? it was much more exuberant when it was released last year. As such, if you are itching to try one now best pull the cork soon.

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.
