Torbreck Vintners RunRig Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

$179.99

Low yielding, old and dry grown Barossa Valley vines are the cornerstone of Torbreck where traditional, manual winemaking methods and minimal intervention are combined to produce world class wines. One of the best Shiraz from Australia we've ever tasted!  100 Points Robert Parker: "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. Scheduled for June 2019 release"

Another Torbreck brought to the Toowoomba Wine Show Judges Dinner at the Downs Club by winemaker Greg McGill. Earthy perfume - a solid full bodied palate 15% ABV. Given 100 points by Joe Czerwinski of Wine Advocate. Never seen the value in Run Rig for the plus $200 price tag. A certain mystique here and one of the Barossa icons but don’t get the hype to be honest.

Well turned out this Chinese restaurant (Golden century) has an amazing wine list. Had to get the run rig.....100 pt (Parker) for less than $300. This is the shit! Just an amazing wine. Plum, blueberry, menthol and ridiculous balance......off scale wine
