The 2004 Descendant, an old oak-aged blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier from a 12-year old vineyard, offers up notes of blackberries, ink, sweet truffles, and acacia flowers. There are 1,000 cases of... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2004 Torbreck Descendant 750ml

Descendant Shiraz / Viognier 2004 - Torbreck: Descendant Shiraz / Viognier 2004 - Rotwein von TorbreckIm Glas zeigt der Torbreck Descendant Shiraz / Viognier 2004 eine fast schon schwarze Farbe mit magentafarbener Schattierung. Sein reines und intensives Bukett von Brombeeren und Teer wird harmonisch ergänzt durch zarte Töne von Lavendel und Veilchen. Mit ausgeprägt intensiver Aromenbalance wird der Gaumen verwöhnt, es finden sich dunkle Beerenaromen, dicht verwoben mit seidigen Tanninen. Ein Rotwein mit Power und Eleganz, der einen lang anhaltenden Abgang verspricht. Sehr zu empfehlen zu gegrilltem kräftigem Fisch mit Speck, geschmortem und gebratenem dunklem Fleisch, intensiv aromatischen Gerichten (mediterrane, aber auch orientalische Küche).Weingut: Torbreck VintnersLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: 92% Shiraz, 8% ViognierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 10 JahreFassreife: 18 Monate in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°CAuszeichnungen: 98 Parker PunkteWine Spectator ? 93 PunkteSteven Tanzer (IWC)- 93 Punkte Rotwein > Australien > Barossa Valley

Lithe, open-textured Shiraz-Viognier blend, offering pretty boysenberry flavors. Feels lighter than most Barossa Shiraz and shows the floral and peach accents of the Viognier. Not quite as seamless as previous vintages, but has a personality of its own. Drink now through 2012.

Roasted black cherry syrup on the nose, along with an exotic hint of apricot from the viognier. Sappy and fruit-driven, with liqueur-like flavors of black cherry and black raspberry. Densely packed and sweet. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins that turned a bit dry with aeration.

Winemaker's Notes:

This single vineyard wine, located next to the winery block on Roennfeldt Road, was planted by Dave Powell in 1994 with cuttings off old RunRig vineyards - some of the oldest genetic material in Australia. The Barossa's first co-fermented Shiraz/Viognier, Descendant has been joined by many more in the last couple of years - a testament to its success. Shiraz is crushed straight on top of Viognier, which has been lightly pressed for RunRig. The blend of fruit is then co-fermented and later the wine is matured for 18 months in barrels that had been previously used for RunRig. The deep red clay soils in this vineyard produce fruit which is very savory, textured and rich, a satin-like texture and a glorious perfume. Of all the Torbreck releases this is one that really needs patience. Its immediate charm can be enjoyed upon release with a few hours breathing, but after the first 6 months, the rest should be locked away for at least 5 years. This iconic wine scores 98 points from Robert Parker.
