As one of the earliest planted grapes in the region, Shiraz has found a natural home in the Barossa Valley. This wine comes from fruit harvested across Torbreck's own estate as well as our growers' patchwork of vineyards.

Winery Tasting Notes
Full of dense, savoury fruit, the 2014 vintage is a rich and 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. Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth, the 2014 Woodcutter's Shiraz will no doubt to develop into an impressive wine with a few years in the cellar. Another fantasttic introduction to the Torbreck range.
Like all wines in the Torbreck stable, the fruit is sourced from hand harvested and hand tended plots throughout the Northwestern Barossa Valley. It is fermented in our cement, wooden and stainless steel vats for 6 - 7 days and then basket pressed to well- seasoned hogsheads and French oak foudres for 12 months. It is bottled without the use of either fining or filtration.
