Torbreck Woodcutter's Shiraz
- Barossa Valley, Australia
The name Woodcutter’s stems from Torbreck founder David Powell’s several years spent working the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest.
This wine reflects the up and coming Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, rather than the battle hardened old vines that make up the core of our other cuvées. But like all Torbreck wines, Woodcutter’s Shiraz receives the very best viticultural and winemaking treatment. Although this wine is constantly praised for its succulence and richness, there is also a complexity and texture which is rarely found at this price.
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, the wine has an incredibly deep central core of dark fruit that gives way to an intense textural mid-palate full of cassis, plum, spice and dark chocolate.
"The vibrant purple 2016 Woodcutter’s Shiraz delivers an affordable introduction to the Torbreck style, offering up fragrant notes of cracked pepper, hickory smoke, ripe blueberries and black olives. It’s not overly concentrated but is flavorful and approachable, with a silky, savory finish." 91/100 Robert Parker
