Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2013
RunRig draws comparison with the beautifully fragrant and tautly structured wines of Côte Rôtie, while Langton''s rate it 'Exceptional' and "...now considered a confident new expression of Barossa Shiraz with the hallmarks of a modern classic."
This rich, opulent red will certainly reward those with patience. It exudes intense, lifted aromatics and a dark, rich and silky palate with deep red cherry fruits, clove, lavender and liquorice all interwoven with hints of sweet spice and cinnamon. The layers and diverse fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass.

Vintage 2013 - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Run Rig has a tantalizingly exotic nose of cloves, fenugreek, star anise and cassia with a core of mulberries, baked blackberries and blueberry preserves plus hints of potpourri and dusty earth. The full-bodied palate is multi-layered with tons of spices and berry preserves notes, supported by firm yet velvety tannins and finishing with incredible length and depth. This is a very impressive RunRig

Vintage 2013 - All the pretty power. This is rich and porty but there’s no shortage of life and lift. It pours on the flavour and turns up the scent. It’s all malt and chocolate, thick blackberry, bitumen and cloves; toast. A wave of earthen, warm, grainy tannin crushes through the back half, a surf-able swell of dark fruit swept along with it. The flavours here are too ripe, too bold, overcooked and all that, but it slams impact and length on the table and keeps smiling at you as it beats its fist. It’s an excellent rendition of RunRig’s take on how things should be done.
