2006 Torbreck "Woodcutters" Shiraz Barossa Valley

SKU #1030637

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Woodcutter’s Shiraz was sourced from six sub-regions of the Barossa. The wine was aged for 12 months in large, neutral French oak and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Purple-colored, it has an attractive array of pepper, spicy blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry muffin aromas. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, the wine delivers gobs of meaty, full-flavored blue and black fruits to accompany its forward, easy-going personality. Drink this incredible value over the next 4-6 years." (10/07) Sourced from hand-harvested, low yielding vines (in this case 100% Shiraz). It is then open fermented and gently basket pressed, and aged on fine lees for 12 months in large format seasoned barrels and foudres. We love its complexity and texture. Supple and so elegant, especially considering the price. 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Torbreck’s entry-level Shiraz boasts lovely aromas of blueberries and spice, with a hint of pepper. On the palate, blueberries and blackberries shine, and the texture is lush, tightening up just enough on the finish. This is a blend of 78 different lots, according to winemaker David Powell, mainly matured in old, large wood. Drink now-2014." 90 points Steve Tanzer's IWC: "Pretty complex for an entry-level wine, and with textbook syrah character. Finishes with sweet cherry and cassis flavors and excellent length."
