Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s.

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

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.

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.
