Torbreck Shiraz Barossa Valley Woodcutter's 2011
The name Woodcutter's stems from when 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.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Torbreck Shiraz Barossa Valley Woodcutter's
Really striking and elegant in this especially difficult 2011 vintage, the Torbreck Woodcutter Shiraz has lots of macerated blueberry and smoked meat character, with clove and pepper spice notes.
100% shiraz aged in used hogs and foudre for 12 months. Inky core to a hazy purple rim. An abundantly aromatic nose leads with fruitcake and is rounded out with plum dark chocolate and licorice. Sweet fruit leads on the palate with cassis and a striking representation of dried cherry and dried strawberry. There is good fruit-laden length and a slight lingering spice. Shows a sense of place and balance. While some of the other Torbreck offerings are hugely unique this delivers Aussie shiraz in a straightforward but very satisfying way. 35 000 cases made. Drink now through 2020. Ryan Moses.
