2015 Torbreck Descendant Shiraz Viognier
Barossa Valley, SA
Torbreck continues to source much of its fruit from selected growers from throughout the Barossa Valley but has increased its own vineyard holdings (the Hillside Vineyard in Lyndoch and the estate Descendant Vineyard adjacent to the winery’s cellar door). In most of their contracts with local growers, the winery oversees the farming regimen, continuing with their share-farm tradition.
“Intense, perfumed fruits with an underlying layer of lavender and spice. Dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly interwoven with subtle nuances of white peach, spice and cinnamon. Full-bodied with great concentration, yet retaining soft supple tannins this suave wine has impeccable balance.” – Torbreck Vintners
