The name Woodcutter's stems from David Powell's several years spent working the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest.
This wine reflects the up & coming Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, rather than the battle hardened old vines which make up the core of our other cuvee's.
Dense, rich and opulent, this wine combines great fruit purity with texture, complexity and finesse. It is elegant, structured and powerful and
is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range.
Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth the 2009 Woodcutter's Shiraz will no doubt develop into an impressive wine with a few years in the cellar.
"Deep colour; a complex and textured wine, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit and oak all making major contributions to a plush, seductive palate."
Australian Wine Companion
"Deep garnet purple-colored, the 2009 Woodcutter's Shiraz is intensely scented of ripe cherry, kirsch and blackberry preserve with some floral notes and nuances of jasmine tea and spice box. Full bodied, concentrated and crisp in the mouth, it has a medium level of fine tannins to texture the flesh, finishing long. Drink it now to 2017+. "
