Torbreck Woodcutter's Shiraz 2021
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
The 2021 summer growing season was mild, with even and cool daily temperatures throughout. Enhanced by good rains provided during the winter and spring of 2020, our vineyards grew wonderful canopies and developed well-formed grape bunches. As a result of this long flavor development cycle in the vineyard, 2021’s signature is wines of high aromatic lift with densely colored tints and exceptional balance.
"Lifted red, black, and blue fruits of red cherry, raspberry coulis, blueberry conserve, and wild blackberry and blackcurrant. There is a spicy edge showing cardamom, star anise, and Chinese five spice. Soft caressing tannins and voluptuous mouthfeel from plump Shiraz berries give this wine a posture that belies its pedigree. The poise and piquancy of the fruit sitting on top of the structured mouthfeel provide confidence to the cellar for 5-10 years." - Torbreck Vintners

Lovely ripened blackberries and raspberries. Al dente. Full-bodied yet so refined and focused with crisp acidity and ultra-fine, creamy tannins. Succulent and crunchy but focused and structured. Bright and purposeful.
