2008 Torbreck Woodcutter's Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$19.99 Bottle
  • Cellar 3 - 4 years (2012-2013)
  • ABV 14.5%
  • Closure: Screw Cap

David Powell loves the Barossa, loves to travel and describes himself as 'both tenacious and a 'glass half-full' kind of person'. The name 'Woodcutter's' is inspired from the days when Powell spent time in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack.

The 2008 Woodcutters is a superb example of Barossa Shiraz.

Powell comments, 'We were lucky to get the majority of our Shiraz off the vines before the worst of the heat hit the Barossa. As a result, this wine has a wonderful balance between richness and finesse with some added depth coming from later picked components'.

Tasting Note:
Opaque black purple, deep crimson colour with black crimson mauve hue. Top note of violets, followed by fresh liquorice all sorts, vanilla and blackberry juice. Mouthfilling palate flavours of fresh liquorice, dark chocolate, vanilla, ripe plum and black pepper. Velvet tannins. Very spicy black pepper, ripe plum and dark chocolate back palate and aftertaste. A top example of a full bodied red.
Cellar 3-4 years (2012-2013)

This wine has a complexity and texture rarely found at this price. Torbreck's top wine - the RunRig (rrp $225) was not made in 2008, which means higher-quality grapes went into this wine, making this particular vintage even better value than it already is.
Dave made this wine for himself - when he drinks wine at home alone he likes to sip on something that keeps his accountant happy. Vibrant upfront, with sweet cherry flavours, this is a fabulous portfolio wine for any cellar.
