The sensational vintages of St John's Road were generations in the making, the fruit of grand old vineyards and the progeny of families which have tilled Barossa soil since early settlement. The landed gentry along St John's Road represent a heritage of the most distinguished names in Australian viticulture, Lehmann and Lienert, Zander, Kalleske and Schutz. With each vintage, they earmark small parcels of the most exceptional Barossa fruit, to be treated to a course of traditional open ferments and term of age in the finest French oak.

There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

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.
