2022 Torbreck Hillside Vineyard Shiraz and Roussanne Barossa Valley – Due to their success in co-fermenting Shiraz and Viognier, they thought it would be interesting to co-ferment the skins from Roussanne with Shiraz. They selected a Shiraz vineyard in Lyndoch that gave them the perfect structure and purity of fruit to balance the aromatics of the Roussanne. Once the juice was gently whole bunch pressed from the Roussanne grapes, the skins were added to the Shiraz and co-fermented. The resulting wine is as unique as it is intense; beautifully lifted and balanced and surprisingly distinctive.
Lifted aromas offer a core of black fruits and summer berries such as satsuma plum, blackberry, mulberry and boysenberry interwoven with secondary notes of ironstone, graphite, bergamot and milk chocolate. The palate’s round and plush mouthfeel surrounds the core of dark fruits and complements soft and silky tannins that are harmonious and textural.
A wine that will benefit from medium term cellaring 2022 to 2035.
