Torbreck Descendant Shiraz 2005 is a single vineyard wine planted by Dave Powell in 1994 with cuttings off old RunRig vineyards - some of the oldest genetic material in Australia. The Barossa's first co-fermented Shiraz/Viognier, Descendant has been joined by many more in the last couple of years - a testament to its success. The 2005 Descendant was purchased in its original cases.

The deep red clay soils in this vineyard produce fruit which is very savory, textured and rich, a satin-like texture and a glorious perfume. Of all the Torbreck releases this is one that really needs patience.

"Immaculate structure, texture and balance; likewise black-fruited shiraz with a subliminal viognier twist, plus licorice and spice; tannins ripe and perfectly weighted." James Halliday

"Intensely spicy aromas of black raspberry, cherry, cocoa powder and Asian spices. Inky and youthfully brooding, with powerful dark berry liqueur flavors, velvety tannins and a building impression of graphite. Tightens with air but not at the expense of its wonderfully lush, deeply concentrated fruit and sexy spices." Stephen Tanzer
