Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

Torbreck Woodcutter Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Before David Powell took on the task of raiding Barossa vineyards, he spent several years on the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest. Woodcutter Shiraz is a highly approachable introduction to the Torbreck range, featuring fruit from some of the up and coming vineyards, rather than the battle hardened old warriors which make up the heart and soul of the Torbreck winelist. This is the kind of red the winemaker himself liked to drink with a hearty meal after a hard day's work in the wood, but you don't have to be a woodcutter to enjoy it.

From good vineyards at Greenock and Marananga, Seppeltsfield, Gomersal, Moppa, Lyndoch and Kalimna, hand tended by the Barossa's most capable growers. Low yielding, old, dry grown vines are the cornerstone of Torbreck. Manual winemaking methods and minimal intervention are combined o produce a profound style. The growers have been selected for the uniqueness of their site and spartan approach to viticulture. The focus at Torbreck wines is on the vineyards, not the winery. Woodcutter is fermented in steel, wood and cement vats over the course of a week, basket pressed to well seasoned hogsheads and French oak foudres for a year, bottled without fining or filtration.
Dark scarlet colour. Sweet boysenberry and candied plum, floral oils and cured meat on the nose, a refreshing mineral tone. Blackberry and raspberry, cherry and licorice, peppery aromas soar from the glass of this opulent, voluptuously textured Shiraz. Boasting superb purity, intensity and length, juicy and nicely balanced with an attractive interplay of red and dark berry flavours given focus by crisp but not strident acidity.
