Red Wine by Torbreck from Barossa Valley, Australia. This wine reflects the up and coming Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, rather than the battle hardened old vines which make up the core of Torbreck’s other cuvees. Full of deep, dark berry fruit, the 2016 vintage is one of the richest and most complex Woodcutter’s of recent years. Rich, opulent fruit with a wonderful freshness and balance. An incredible deep, central core of dark fruit gives way to an intense textural mid palate full of cassis, plum, spice and dark chocolate. Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth the 2016 Woodcutter’s Shiraz will certainly develop into an impressive wine with 7 – 10 years in the cellar. Another fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range. The name Woodcutter’s stems from when Torbreck founder David Powell spent several years working in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack or woodcutter in the Torbreck forest. Like all Torbreck wines it’s sourced from hand harvested and hand tended, low yielding vines.
