2020 Torbreck RunRig Shiraz Barossa Valley – RunRig has often drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant and tautly structured wines produced from the steep slopes of the Northern Rhone Valley’s Appellation of Cote Rotie.
The inaugural RunRig vintage was 1995. Over the years since, RunRig has become a benchmark of Barossa and Australian Shiraz, and the wine has become a favourite for wine collectors the world over.
Although wonderfully aromatic, RunRig also exhibits a power and latent richness making it more akin to the hugely concentrated wines sourced from the sun drenched hill of Hermitage – the historic home of Syrah and some of the world’s most powerful and longest living wines.
Aubergine core with a deep purple rim. Aromatics leap from the glass with great finesse and power yet with precision and focus. The lifted plum, black currant and dark cherry along with Turkish delight, star anise, earl grey tea and black olive combine with gorgeous plumes of subtle vanilla pod and cardamom aromas. The palate is dense, firm and powerful yet holds incredibly balanced fruit intermingled with voluminous structure.
One of the better RunRig’s from lower than normal yields. A wine for the cellar best after 2025-2050. Serve at 16C with delicious rich flavoured cuisines.
