Torbreck Woodcutters Shiraz 2020, Torbreck

Australia / South Australia

Andy's Tasting Notes

The baby of the Torbreck range, yet lavished with the very best care and attention that their top of the range wines receive. Produced from 7 high quality selected areas within the Barossa Valley: Marananga, Greenock, Seppeltsfield, Gomersal, Moppa, Lyndoch, Ebenezer. Has a luxurious texture with velvety richness and layers of subtle flavours and complexity.

Producer notes – tasting note:  Full of freshness and bright youthful fruits, the 2020 vintage of Woodcutter’s Shiraz possesses no small amount of exuberance and personality. Aromatic plum and black cherry with dark chocolate and intensity, yet refined. The balanced palate has a round central core of black and blue fruit that gives way to a complex mid-palate. While offering immense pleasure in its youth, the 2020 Woodcutter’s Shiraz will certainly develop into an impressive wine with a few more years in the cellar. A fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range.

The estate practises sustainable viticulture.

Producer Info

Torbreck Vintners, which was founded in 1994, was born out of a desire to create some of the greatest wines in the world by using the incredibly old, dry-grown, Shiraz vineyards that surround the Barossa Valley. Securing these vineyards initially involved share-farming the property, a practice which involves paying the owner a percentage of the market rate for their grapes in return for managing the vineyard. It was this share-farming principle, together with their selection of some of the most highly prized vineyards, that formed the founding pillars of Torbreck’s incredible international success. The vineyards, in particular, enabled them to source some of the very best fruit in the Barossa Valley, which is home to some of the oldest and most precious vines in the world. Provenance is everything to Torbreck. They believe that the Barossa Valley, with its gentle Mediterranean climate and 175 year history of Silesian and English winemaking, is most exciting place in the world to make wine. There is a European sense of tradition here that means that vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre – still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavour.

Today, Torbreck pays tribute to these vineyards with minimal intervention, creating wines of richness, structure and length that age gracefully.
