2020 Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz Barossa Valley – 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 their other cuvées.
But like all Torbreck wines, Woodcutter’s Shiraz receives the very best viticultural and winemaking treatment. Fruit is sourced from hand-harvested and hand-tended, low-yielding vines, then open fermented and gently basket pressed before ageing on fine lees for 12 months in large format seasoned barrels and foudres.
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 freshness and bright youthful fruits, this vintage brings an elegance and class to the wines. Aromatic blackberries and raspberries with freshness and balance, the wine has a round central core of red fruit that gives way to a complex mid palate full of cassis, dark cherry, spice and vanilla.
While offering immense pleasure in its youth, the Woodcutter’s Shiraz will certainly develop into an impressive wine with a few more years in the cellar. A fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range.
