Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2016

Region Barossa Valley, SA Variety Shiraz

This superbly elegant wine was crafted from six parcels of old, dry-grown vineyards. The addition of 2% Voignier helps to complement and draw out the strengths of these delightful parcels of premium fruit. A long, slow ripening period ensured a really exceptional vintage, followed by 30 months on new, second and third fill French oak barriques, on top of natural malolactic fermentation. The result? A plush, vibrant and complex wine; deep crimson in colour, with firm tannins and a silky, generous palate, finishing long and firm. Cellaring potential for the next 15-20 years.

Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

A blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier made just prior to bottling, the 2016 RunRig is a complete masterpiece. It kicks off with elegant notes of pencil shavings accenting blueberries and blackberries on the nose, then shows incredible, palate-staining intensity of fruit in the mouth. It’s full-bodied, plush and velvety without being unstructured and manages to be fruit-forward yet savory on the long-lasting finish, where it picks up hints of mocha and black olives. This should be drinkable with pleasure throughout its entire two decade life (it may live longer from cold cellars or in larger formats), but if I were lucky enough to have a bottle or two, I’d try the first one about 10 years out.
