"Plenty of rich dark berries and some currant-like notes, too. There’s a glossy feel with some fragrant elements (a little co-fermented roussanne and viognier). Attractive dark-plum and berry palate. Really vinous with a fresh finish. Drink now. Screw cap." (JS)

Winery Notes:
The growing season was defined by a continuously warm to hot summer with no effective rainfall, wind and hail at flowering, and followed with three major frosts - resulting in an earlier and much smaller harvest than average. These tough conditions produced smaller clusters of intensely dark berries with thick fleshy skins contrasted against brown mature stalks. Whilst yields were down, once these vineyards were fermenting in our cellar the concentration of colour, tannin and aroma of the 2019 vintage was revealed.

Full of freshness and bright youthful fruits, the 2019vintage brings an opulence and class to the wines. Aromatic plum and raspberries with freshness and balance, the wine has a round central coreof red fruit that gives way toa complex mid-palate full of cassis, dark cherry, spice and vanilla. While offering immense pleasure in its youth, the 2019Woodcutter’s -Shiraz will certainly develop into an impressive wine with a few more years in the cellar. A fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range.
