Torbreck RunRig 2017

  • Grape 98.5% Shiraz, 1.5% Viognier
  • Country Australia
  • Region Barossa Valley
  • ABV 15.5%
  • Producer Torbreck
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • 30 months on new (42%), second fill and third fill French oak barriques Crimson and deep purple hues Cherry plum, dark chocolate, mulberry, and five-spice with savoury tones Full-bodied, firm tannins that interplay with a generous, silky, textural midpalate weight. The finish is firm and persistent. Although wonderfully aromatic, Runrig exhibits a power and latent richness, making it more akin to the hugely concentrated wines sourced from the sun-drenched hill of Hermitage – the historic home of Syrah and some of the world’s most powerful and longest-living wines.

30 months on new (50%), second fill and third fill French oak barriques, completing a natural malolactic fermentation in the barrel and resting on fine lees throughout maturation to enhance texture. After a cold and rainy winter in 2016, the Barossa had one of its wettest springs on record, replenishing sub-soil moisture and setting the vineyards up for a healthy summer. Mild conditions during veraison and light rains in January and February 2017, followed by an extended warm, dry Indian summer, created perfect ripening conditions through to April 2017. An outstanding vintage producing bright, aromatic whites and intense, well-structured reds. Shiraz from old dry-grown vineyards is blended with Viognier, complementing the strengths and complexities of these individual parcels of fruit whilst giving the resulting wine a further dimension.

The vision is Torbreck Vintners, founded in 1994 and born out of a desire to create some of the greatest wines in the world by using the ancient, dry-grown Shiraz vineyards surrounding the Barossa Valley. Securing these vineyards initially involved share-farming the property, which involves paying the owner a percentage of the market rate for their grapes in return for managing the vineyard. This share-farming principle, together with their selection of some of the most highly prized vineyards, formed the founding pillars of Torbreck’s incredible international success. The vineyards, in particular, enabled them to source some of the very best fruit in the Barossa Valley, home to some of the world's oldest and most precious vines. Provenance is everything to Torbreck. They believe that the Barossa Valley, with its gentle Mediterranean climate and 175-year Silesian and English winemaking history, is the most exciting place in the world to make wine. A European sense of tradition here means that vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre – still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavour.
