Torbreck Woodcutters Semillon Barossa Valley 2007
This bright yellow wine opens with a very aromatic Pink Lady apple like bouquet. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is round, slightly viscous, creamy, and has pleasant refreshing lemon lime like flavors with a touch of minerality. The wine has a pleasant dry feel on the finish and lingers for a little while. This wine would be a perfect match for swordfish with lemon. Fashioned with the savoury, food friendly dry whites of Southern France in mind, the Woodcutters Semillon is the ideal tonic after a long day in the vineyard. Medium bodied with a pristine lemon hue this youthful Semillon offers delicate scents of calamansi, limestone, candle wax, and toasted brioche. The copper-pink skins of this robust, age-old Madeira Clone flesh out the palate, lending notes of almond kernels, soft pineapple, roasted cashew and white peach. Underlying notes of citrus oil and minerals maintain the wines freshness whilst a crisp spine of razor-like acidity neatly lace together the finish.Torbreck, under the leadership of owner/winemaker David Powell, remains a Barossa Valley benchmark as well as one of the worlds greatest wine estates. The top cuvees are limited production and expensive but there are also some outstanding values in the portfolio.
Enjoyable wine GR-SY-MV blend. Loads of interesting smokey fruit. Surprised to read this is non-oaked as it would have fooled me. Great price and would drink into 2011 and maybe a little further.
Good but read that it may be better to age decent semillon for a bit to bring out flavors that I prefer - going to try to find a Hunter's Valley (Australia) Semillon as those are supposed to be the best
External Reviews for Torbreck Woodcutters Semillon Barossa Valley
Medium red. Blackberry and cassis on the nose, with subtle cocoa and roasted coffee qualities. Sweet, jammy dark berry flavors are hit with a late jolt of vanilla. Quite soft and with no obvious tannins, this easygoing wine finishes sweet and lightly spicy. I’d serve this with grilled, strongly seasoned red meat.

Torbreck Juvenile's GSM 2007: Der Inhaber der Weinbar "Juveniles" in Paris Tim Johnston hatte 1999 Dave gebeten einen Wein speziell für ihn zu kreieren. Das üppige Bukett verwöhnt Nase und Gaumen mit Aromen von Kirschlikör, Himbeeren und Brombeeren, dazu gesellen sich würzige Noten von schwarzen Oliven und Pfeffer. Ein wunderbar fruchtbetonter und vollmundiger Rotwein, der besonders in der französischen Küche, zu Gegrilltem, Schmorgerichten, würzigem Käse oder auch zu Schokodesserts passt.Weingut: Torbreck VintnersRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 20% MourvedreInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,9 Vol.%Restsüße: 5,84 g/lSäuregehalt: trockenempfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12-16 °CLagerfähigkeit: 3-5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Australien > Barossa Valley
A terrific buy, the 2005 Juveniles is a tank-fermented and aged blend of Grenache (60%), Shiraz (20%), and Mataro (20%) made from 40-150-year old vines. Provencal-like notes of garrigue, pepper, spice, sweet cherries, and black currants jump from the glass of this elegant, medium-bodied effort. With superb fruit as well as purity, and no hard edges, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-4 years.
Fresh and vibrant, this is framed with crisp tannins, offering a core of plum and licorice flavors that vie for attention. The finish gets a bit hot. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2013.
The 2008 Cuvée Juveniles, a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, and 20% Mataro raised in tank. Dark ruby-colored, it presents an alluring aromatic array of spice box, incense, and black cherry compote. Ripe, sweet, pure, and easy to understand, this forward, friendly effort can be enjoyed now and over the next 3 years.
Ruby-red. Black raspberry and blueberry on the nose, with subtle floral and spice qualities adding complexity. Juicy and appealingly sweet, with lively red and dark berry flavors and tangy minerality. There's nothing heavy about this wine. The black raspberry note recurs on the focused finish. Livelier than the 2007 and the best version of this bottling I've yet tasted.
