Torbreck Descendant Barrosa Valley 2017

This single vineyard, located next to our winery block on
Roennfeldt Road, was planted in 1994 with cuttings taken
from our RunRig grower vineyards – some of the oldest
genetic vine material in Australia.
Shiraz is crushed straight on top of Viognier, which has been
lightly pressed for RunRig, and the blend of fruit is then
co-fermented. Maturation over 20 months is in barrels that
have previously been used for RunRig.
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, were followed by an extended warm, dry
Indian summer, creating perfect ripening conditions through to
April 2017. An outstanding vintage producing bright, aromatic
whites and intense, well-structured reds.
Intense, perfumed fruits with an underlying layer of lavender
and spice. Dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly
interwoven with subtle nuances of spice and cinnamon. Fullbodied with great concentration, yet retaining firm yet supple
tannins this suave wine has impeccable balance. Descendant
will reward you with its immediate charm and can be enjoyed
upon release with just a few hours breathing, however, we
recommend locking the other bottles away for 5+ years to
enjoy its further potential, or better still cellaring for the next
15 years plus.
