One of Australia’s leading wineries, Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994. He affectionately named his winery “Torbreck” after a forest in Scotland where he once worked as a lumberjack. Torbreck produces wines exclusively from the most revered vineyards in the Barossa Valley, home to some of the oldest vines and clonal material in the world, thanks to its freedom from phylloxera. Red wines are produced from the classic Barossa varieties –Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, using manual, traditional methods. White wines are produced from Semillon, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The wines have been praised effusively since the beginning by the world’s leading wine critics, journalists and opinion leaders and are represented on the wine lists of the world’s best restaurants. In 2008 the completion of a state of the art, eco-friendly winery, packaging and administration building has meant the realization of David’s goal to have all Torbreck wines produced and bottled on the estate.

Tasting notes
Medium- to full-bodied with aromas and flavors of cherry, blackberry, plum and smoke. Integrated tannins and acids round out an enjoyable finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Feb 2014)
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Woodcutter?s Shiraz has a slightly rubbery and reduced nose to begin then opens up to black cherry compote and blackberry preserves aromas accented by tar and licorice hints. Full-bodied with tons of savory, muscular fruit flavors, it has a medium level of rounded tannins and refreshing acid to carry through the long finish. Drink it now to 2018.
 Wine Spectator 88 points (May 15 2014)
Earthy, decadent flavors add distinctive notes to the dark berry flavors in this savory style of Shiraz. The strong personality comes across as harmonious. Drink now through 2018. 3,800 cases imported. –HS

Fruit sourced from six parcels planted in northwestern Barossa Valley was fermented in cement, wood and stainless steel vats for 6-7 days. The must was basket pressed into neutral hogsheads and French oak foudres for 12 months, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
