Winemaker's Notes

"An outrageous value, there are 25,000 cases of the 2005 Woodcutter's Shiraz. A 100% Shiraz from 10-20-year old vines, aged 12 months in old foudres, this fabulous effort may be the finest inexpensive Shiraz David Powell has yet produced. Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, licorice, and peppery aromas soar from the glass of this full-bodied, opulent, voluptuously-textured wine. Boasting superb purity, length, and intensity, this beauty simply over-delivers, radically changing one's opinion on what can be purchased for a mere $20 a bottle. It should drink well for 7-8 years."
-Wine Advocate

The name Woodcutters stems from when David Powell spent several years working in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack or woodcutter in the Torbreck forest.

The Woodcutters Red, like all Torbreck wines, sources fruit from hand harvested and hand tended, low yielding vines. It is fermented and gently pressed, then aged for 12 months in large format seasoned barrels and foudres.
