V90 Vinous / Antonio Galloni
JH94Australian Wine Companion

Dense, rich and sublime, the 2013 vintage has an opulent vibrancy combining dense, fruit purity with real texture, complexity and finesse. It is elegant, structured and powerful example and is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range. Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth the 2013 Woodcutter's Shiraz will no doubt develop into an impressive wine with a few years in the cellar.


JH94Australian Wine Companion - "Part estate, part contract-grown. Strongly coloured, this has more grunt and depth to some of its predecessors, with savoury black fruits occupying centre stage, ripe tannins stationed in the wings to block any escape." V90 Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Opaque ruby. Heady smoky- and spice-accented black and blue fruit scents, with hints of violet and cracked pepper building in the glass. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and cassis flavors plus a hint of floral pastille. This concentrated, energetic Shiraz finishes with silky tannins and a long, fruit-driven finish accented by repeating notes of spices and flowers. This wine makes a great introduction to Torbreck's style at a gentle price." The name Woodcutter's stems from when Torbreck founder David Powell spent several years working in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack or woodcutter in the Torbreck forest. Like all Torbreck wines it's sourced from hand harvested and hand tended, low yielding vines. It is then open fermented and gently basket pressed, and aged one fine lees for 12 months in large format seasoned barrels and foudres. Although this wine is constantly praised for being succulent and rich - perhaps the best feature of this wine is it's complexity and texture which are rarely found at this price.
