Winemaker Notes

The delightful aromatics are released as soon as the wine is de-corked, with layers of raspberries, apricots and creme de cassis cloaking subtle hints of black olive and cherry. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding anise and dark chocolate and is bound by tight, grainy tannin. This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve.

Although extremely intense, the wine's power is cloaked within its balance and concentration, surging forth as an expansive sensation - the way only the greatest wines can. The 2009 RunRig will greatly reward those with patience.

Critical Acclaim

RP 99
The Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 RunRig opens with wonderful perfume, and though this label usually contains a splash of Viognier, which could account for the fragrant nose, it has none this vintage. Redolent of violets and blueberries it is very spicy with an undercurrent of anise and Indian spices muddled with mulberries. Taut and elegant on the palate, it gives plenty of concentrated fruit flavor with crisp acid and firm, fine tannins. It finishes long.

JH 95
Australian Wine Companion

This is larger than life, super concentrated, black-fruited, dark and essency shiraz, befitting of maker David Powell; whilst the concentration is staggering, the underlying tannins and freshness provides length, complexity and interest. Make no mistake this is big end of town, take no prisoners old vine shiraz pushed to the limit.

WS 95
Wine Spectator

Polished, ripe and seamless, playing out its layers and layers of dark berry, cherry, black olive and spice flavors on a rich, supple frame. The finish picks up mint and cream notes as it lingers effortlessly. A study in depth and opulence. Shiraz. Drink now through 2025.

Torbreck
Torbreck, founded in 1994 by David Powell, is situated at Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa. Since that time he has produced some of the world?s finest 'Rhone varietal' wines, exclusively from Barossa fruit; this has been acknowledged by the wine press in Europe, America and Australia. The overwhelming majority of his vines are dry-grown, nearly all are 80 - 125 years old and are tended and harvested by hand.

The wines have an extraordinary combination of power, intesity, complexity and great finesse, and bearing in mind the age of the vines and the laughably low yields, no Torbreck wine could ever be accused of being heavy, cloying or over-extracted.
