The Torbreck endeavour is based around precious Barossa vineyards and a love for the classics of Rhone Valley. In 1995 Dave Powell crushed three tonnes of grapes and fermented wine in a shed on his Marananga property. He named his wine Torbreck after a forest in Scotland where he worked as a lumberjack. The deep red clay soils at Marananga produce fruit which is savoury and rich, a satin texture and glorious perfume. Shiraz is crushed straight on top of Viognier grapes which have been lightly pressed for RunRig. The mixture is co fermented and treated to twenty two months maturation in seasoned French oak barrels which have previously been used for the ageing of RunRig.
Completely black/ purple with healthy, vibrant magenta hues. A pure, wild, powerful nose of blackberry and tar is complimented by a gentle floral lift of lavender and violets. Full bodied with great concentration, lavish layers of dense blueberry fruit are perfectly interwoven with nuances of cinnamon, tar, exotic spice, pepper and dark cherry. Silky tannins and perfectly judged extract, a vigorous, lengthy finish.
