About this product

99:RP Outer quote mark I feel like the consistency and quality of Torbreck's flagship wine has only increased over time. The 2012 RunRig is gorgeously floral and vibrant, with concentrated red berries, characteristic weight and intensity on the palate and supple, silky tannins. It's delicious now, but it should age gracefully through at least 2035. RP

96:D Founder Dave Powell singled out old vineyards principally in the north-west Barossa, where it is drier and yields are super-low. This hedonistic Shiraz Viognier has a pure velvet punch of crushed red cherry, bilberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit, with confit notes and a hint of tar alongside chocolate and oak vanillin. A raft of old vine spice and minerality brings savoury balance and, with a kick of alcohol, great gravelly, peppery resonance. Drinking Window 2017 - 2030 D
