Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

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.

Winemaking Notes

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.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Torbreck is on a quest to become one of the world’s great wine marques.

A critical part of this journey is remaining unwaveringly true to our core vision and not being diverted by trends and fashions.

Since 1994 Torbreck has been committed to creating exceptional Rhone style red and white wines reflecting the very best vineyards in Australia’s famous Barossa.

Provenance is everything to us. We believe the Barossa is the most exciting place to make wine in the world, with its gentle Mediterranean climate and 175 years of Silesian and English commitment to winemaking and grape-growing.

There is a European sense of tradition here that means vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvédre – still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavour.

Torbreck pays tribute to these vineyards with minimal intervention, creating wines of richness, structure and length that age gracefully.

The multi-generational growers, whose descendants arrived here nearly two centuries ago, are the backbone of Torbreck’s winemaking aspirations. Without their knowledge of the seasons and the soil, we would not have such a precious resource of fruit to work with.

Torbreck has also been fortunate to have the opportunity to invest in the protection of some of the Barossa’s most precious vineyards, after accepting fruit from them over many years. The historic Hillside Vineyard at Lyndoch, The Laird Vineyard in the sub-region of Marananga and the Greenock Keller Vineyard owned by the Schultz family, are all now under the custodianship of Torbreck.
