As one of the earliest planted grapes in the region, Shiraz has found a natural home in the Barossa Valley. This wine comes from fruit harvested across Torbreck’s own estate as well as our growers’ patchwork of vineyards.
The 2017 Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz begins with pleasant aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, licorice, spice, mint, vanilla and more. This is a really tasty, classic Shiraz with lots of juicy, rich, dark fruit plus pepper, spice and a hint of smoke. With a smooth and velvety mouthfeel this medium to full-bodied wine is a winner. It ends with grippy tannins on the long, dry, lingering finish of vanilla, black tea and cocoa.
