Torbreck Woodcutter's Shiraz 2017 (Barossa Valley)
Torbreck Woodcutter's Shiraz 2017 is full of freshness and bright youthful fruits, the 2017 vintage brings an elegance and class to the wines.
Aromatic blackberries and raspberries with freshness and balance, the wine has a round central core of red fruit that gives way to a complex mid-palate full of cassis, dark cherry, spice and vanilla.
While offering immense pleasure in its youth, the 2017 Woodcutter’s Shiraz will certainly develop into an impressive wine with a few more years in the cellar. A fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range.
SOLD OUT - Torbreck's 2018 vintage Woodcutter's Shiraz is now available here.
Torbreck is the name of a forest near Inverness, Scotland. You’ll find more than a passing nod to the Celts in our wine naming conventions including this tribute to the foresters of this rugged high country.
After a cold and rainy winter in 2016, the Barossa had one of its wettest springs on record, replenishing sub-soil moisture and setting the vineyards up for a healthy summer. Mild conditions during veraison and light rains in January and February 2017 were followed by an extended warm, dry Indian summer, creating perfect ripening conditions through to April 2017. An outstanding vintage producing bright, aromatic whites and intense, well-structured reds.
100% Shiraz grapes from the Marananga, Greenock, Seppeltsfield, Gomersal, Moppa, Lyndoch, and Ebenezer districts. Harvested in late February through early April 2017. Winery Notes
