External Reviews for Torbreck Descendent Shiraz Viognier Barossa Valley Cl
A young vineyard (planted in 1994 with cuttings from the vines that make RunRig) yields this tremendously aromatic Shiraz, lifted with 8 percent Viognier. Itandrsquo;s spicy, leafy, floral and gamy character wraps around a core of dark, brooding fruit, turning leaner and less generous in the mouth, finishing with a nice mineral touch. Thereandrsquo;s a lot going on, and maybe it will break out with cellaring. Best after 2007.
Tremendously aromatic with spicy leafy floral and gamy character wrapping around a core of dark brooding fruit turning leaner and less generous in the mouth finishing with a nice mineral touch. There s a lot going on but it never quite breaks out-maybe with cellaring?... Wine Spectator.
Velvety, with floral and apricot notes adding their presence to the blackberry fruit, which echoes nicely on the finish. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2012.
