‘A most impressive shiraz’ – 96 Points & 5 Stars Huon Hooke
Torbreck is the name of a forest near Inverness, Scotland. You’ll find more than a passing nod to the Celts in our wine naming conventions including Struie, which is a 157 metre high mountain in the rugged highlands of north-east Scotland. The view from the Struie down across the Dornoch Firth is as inspiring as that of the Valley floor from Eden Valley.
This Torbreck Shiraz cuvée is a skilful blend of fruit from a 40 year old Eden Valley Shiraz vineyard and an 80 year old Barossa Shiraz vineyard – a marriage of elegance and intensity.
“Deep, concentrated purple/red hue with a rich, ripe aroma of violets, blackberry and hints of spice and background sooty and earthy notes. The wine is intense and bright, with rich sweet fruit on the mid-palate backed up by strong but supple tannins. Very long carry. A most impressive shiraz, the high and low country components fitting together seamlessly.” – 96 Points & 5 Stars Huon Hooke
