2004 Torbreck Descendant Shiraz Viognier

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$150.00 Bottle
  • ABV 14.5%
  • Closure: Cork

Notes sourced from Torbreck.
The vineyard was planted with cuttings from one of the old RunRig vineyards. The Shiraz is crushed on top of the Viognier from the same vineyard, which has been lightly pressed for blending with the RunRig. The blend of fruit is then co-fermented and later the wine matured for 18 months in 2 ½  year old French barrels that had been previously used for RunRig.

Made from a blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier. The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier which, as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig. The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.

Other Reviews...
Almost impenetrable purple-red colour; marries elegance bordering on restraint with intense blackberry fruit and Viognier lift; controlled oak, tannins and alcohol.

"James Halliday - 2007 Australian Wine Companion"

The 2004 Descendant, an old oak-aged blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier from a 12-year old vineyard, offers up notes of blackberries, ink, sweet truffles, and acacia flowers. There are 1,000 cases of this full-bodied, intense, rich blockbuster. It will drink well for 10-15 years.
