Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018
This is the kind of red I liked to drink with a hearty meal after a hard day's work in the wood, but you don't have to be a WOOD-CUTTER to enjoy it...
The name Woodcutter's stems from when Torbreck founder David Powell spent several years working in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack or woodcutter in the Torbreck forest. Like all Torbreck wines it's sourced from hand harvested and hand tended, low yielding vines. It is then open fermented and gently basket pressed, and aged one fine lees for 12 months in large format seasoned barrels and foudres.
Although this wine is constantly praised for being succulent and rich - perhaps the best feature of this wine is it's complexity and texture which are rarely found at this price.
