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.
There are 1,000 cases of the 2002 Decendant, a blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier that spent 18 months in 2-year-old French oak. The fruit is sourced from the section of the Barossa Valley known as the Marananga. The Viognier and Shiraz are co-fermented together, and the name, Decendant, comes from the fact that it is essentially the same blend as the famous Run Rig, but sees no new oak. A magnificent effort, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2002 Decendant offers gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberries, raspberries, licorice, acacia flowers, and the added notes of honeysuckle and apricots from the Viognier. Full-bodied and opulently textured, with good tannin, structure, purity, and a broad, expansive finish that lasts nearly a minute, it needs 1–2 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12–15+.
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 ... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2002 Torbreck Descendant 750ml
