2007 Torbreck ‘Run Rig’ Shiraz

$490.00

Torbreck is one of Barossa’s most prolific producers, focusing on Rhône-style wines and old vines.
Owner Pete Kight has made significant investments, and the superstar team of winemaker Ian Hongell and viticulturist Nigel Blieschke has meant the wines are on an upswing of late.
Torbreck pays tribute to the Barossa with minimal intervention, creating wines of richness, structure and length that age gracefully.

Description

98+ Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Co-fermented with a splash of Viognier, the 2007 RunRig gives a very deep garnet-purple color and a perfumed nose of warm cassis, crushed blackberries and blueberries over anise, cassia, cloves, tea leaves, rose hips plus earthy hints of black truffles and tilled loam. The full-bodied palate offers rich, ripe but not over-ripe fruit with a taut structure of firm grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing very long with a gamey/savory character coming through with some cedar and baking spices. Not a style to be broached too early, consider drinking this from 2015 to 2025+.
