Torbreck Woodcutters Shiraz 2015/2016 75 cl
- Torbreck Vintner's was created in 1994 with the aim of building one of the finest wine estates in the world.
- Wine growing started in the Barossa Valley in 1842 with the arrival of immigrants from Germany and England. They brought with them many grape varietals from Europe, particularly Rhone valley classics such as Shiraz, Viognier and Grenache. Incredibly some of these original vines have withstood the test of time and are still alive today. The Barossa now has the oldest vines in the world, some of which are over 125 years old.
- Today, some Barossa producers are still havesting incredibly small yields of intensely concentrated grapes from these vines; in order to produce wines of unparalleled complexity and longevity.
- Torbreck is one such producer. Its Rhone style old vine Barossa wines are some of the greatest in the world, a fact backed up by the high scores they regularly receive from some of the industry's most respected judges.
- Woodcutter's Shiraz is made entirely from hand harvested Shiraz fruit. This wine represents the up & coming Shiraz vineyards, rather than the battle-hardened older vines. Full of dense, savoury fruit, this is a rich & complex wine. A dark cherry, central core of fruit gives way to an intense textural mid-palate full of blueberry, cocoa, spice and dark chocolate.

Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994. The roots go back to 1992 when David, who was then working at Rockford, began to discover and clean up a few sections of dry-grown old vines.
Near lifeless, he nurtured them back to health and was rewarded with small parcels of fruit that he made into wine. David was able to secure a contract for the supply of grapes from a run-down but ancient Shiraz vineyard. .
He managed to raise enough money to share-farm the vineyard, a practice which involves paying the owner a percentage of the market rate for his grapes in return for totally managing the vineyard.
This share-farming principle has enabled Torbreck to use fruit from the very best vineyards in the Barossa Valley, which is home to some of the most precious old vines in the world.
In 1995 David crushed three tonnes of grapes and fermented them into wine in a shed on his 12-hectare Marananga property. He named his wine 'Torbreck' after a forest in Scotland where he worked as a lumberjack.
The Torbreck endeavour is based around the classic Barossa Valley varietals of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, and a love for the wines of France's Rhone Valley.
Torbreck doesn't only make red wines though, we have Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne planted on our winery block which we have blended to make a white wine.
From the manufacturer
Torbreck Vintners, which was founded in 1994, was born out of a desire to create some of the greatest wines in the world by using the incredibly old, dry-grown, Shiraz vineyards that surround the Barossa Valley. It was this share-farming principle, together with their selection of some of the most highly prized vineyards, that formed the founding pillars of Torbreck’s incredible international success. The vineyards in particular enabled them to source some of the very best fruit in the Barossa Valley, which is home to some of the oldest and most precious vines in the world.
Provenance is everything to Torbreck. They believe that the Barossa Valley, with its gentle Mediterranean climate and 175 year history of Silesian and English winemaking, is the most exciting place in the world to make wine. There is a European sense of tradition here that means that vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre – still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavour. Today, Torbreck pays tribute to these vineyards with minimal intervention, creating wines of richness, structure and length that age gracefully.
Torbreck’s vision of creating a estate-produced and bottled wine was realised in 2008 when a new winery and administration facility was opened on land acquired from a neighbouring property. This facility enables the grapes to be handpicked, and vinified using the best and most modern equipment available. The wine is then matured in temperature controlled cellars and bottled ‘on the estate’ using a state of-the art bottling line, before being shipped to many of the world’s best restaurants and fine wine retailers.
