Winemaker Notes

Crimson and deep purple hues. Aromas of cherry plum, dark chocolate, mulberry and five-spice with savory tones. Full bodied, firm tannins that interplay with a generous, silky, textural mid palate weight. The finish is firm and persistent. Intense, lifted aromatics of dense cherry plum and dark chocolate all come to the fore with an opulent fruit profile of mulberry and five-spice. A silky textured palate of deep red cherry fruits, clove and liquorice all interwoven with hints of sweet spice and cinnamon. The layers and diverse fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass with hints of ironstone, anise, blackberry, and pepper all becoming more persistent in the finish. This silky, fragrant RunRig will certainly reward those with patience.

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Who would've thought that in the context of Barossa Shiraz, the 2015 RunRig would seem like a relative bargain? It's certainly much less expensive than Grange or Hill of Grace will be when they're released. It's also more approachable in its youth, with enormously appealing aromas of grilled fruit, savory complexities and rich, velvety tannins. Of course, it's full-bodied and concentrated, with the stuffing to age for up to a couple of decades, and it has a long, licorice-tinged finish. Winemaker Ian Hongell, who joined Torbreck from Peter Lehmann, may not have made this wine, but he deserves a lot of credit for the blending and finishing of this tour de force.
JS 96
James Suckling
A great RunRig that has unapologetic richness and ripeness with a very fragrant viognier kick on the nose, which adds perfume to the aromas of blackberries, blood plums and tarry notes. The palate sweeps in big waves of fleshy fruit, carrying an impressive core of spice-wrapped sweet black fruits, The ribbon-like tannins deliver length in a smoothly charming mode.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

An extra year in bottle for this premium, blockbuster wine does it a lot of good. Things feel more more open and relaxed. The nose smells like Christmas pudding, with notes of raisiny red fruit and plums, baking spices, toffee, chocolate and vanillin oak, as well as hints of green-herbal and dusting-polish characters at the rear. Fruit on the palate is silky but tightly lassoed with fine powerful granular tannins and large helpings of high-end oak. If the fruit can hold up as well as the tannins and oak, this wine should cellar until 2034 or longer.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Juicy and vibrant, with plenty of oomph to the herb-scented blackberry and plum flavors at the core, offering spicy tobacco, tomato leaf and dark chocolate notes that linger on the finish. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2028.

Torbreck, Australia
Torbreck Winery Video

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.

Barossa Valley Wine

Barossa, Australia

View all products

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds.

While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

View all products

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
