Estate Notes

Torbreck's RunRig 2006 was purchased in its original wooden case. It is the estate's flagship wine, made from extremely old vines from eight separate premium Barossa plots.

The RunRig combines the sheer fruit intensity of some of the finest Shiraz vines of the Barossa with European elegance - the small percentage of Viognier adding real vitality - and hence the best of both worlds.

Torbreck is named after a forest in Scotland where winemaker David Powell once worked as a lumberjack.

Reviews

“The flagship 2006 Run Rig is a blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier. A saturated purple color, it sends up a complex bouquet of cigar box, Asian spices, incense, bacon, plum, and blueberry. On the palate it admirably combines power and elegance. Layers of succulent fruit are nicely complemented by the wine’s generous framework. Another 4-6 years of cellaring should fill it out with style." eRobertParker.com

“A very fragrant bouquet attests to the influence of viognier, which also may be part of the reason why the palate does not show the high alcohol, and is simply supple and velvety, even showing a hint of spice.” James Halliday

“Torbreck, under the leadership of owner/winemaker David Powell, remains a Barossa Valley benchmark as well as one of the world’s greatest wine estates.” eRobertParker.com
