Torbreck-The Pict-Mataro-2004-750mL

Producer: Torbreck
SKU: 549
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

The wild, rugged and earthen aromas typically associated with the Bandol region of France provide the basis for this powerful single vineyard Mataro.

 

Fresh soil, tree bark, cassis and leather dominate the nose with hints of spice and chocolate coming through. The palate is elegantly rich and earthy and already beautifully balanced.

 

The tannins are ripe and profound and the 2004 Pict is expected to flourish and develop for many years.”

95+/100
The Wine Advocate
A new offering, the 2004 The Pict, is a 220-case cuvee of 100% Mourvedre that tips the scales at 13.2% alcohol. Reminiscent of a 1998 Domaine Tempier Cuvee Speciale (a great vintage for that estate), it boasts an inky/blue/purple color, phenomenally intense blueberry and blackberry fruit characteristics, and hints of black truffles as well as fresh mushrooms. Deep and full-bodied, with superb fruit and the right amount of sweet tannin (a rarity for Mourvedre), this beauty should evolve slowly, and drink well for 15 or more years.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



94/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Inky purple. Explosively perfumed nose features potent boysenberry, blueberry and lavender aromas deepened by licorice, espresso and musky underbrush. Broad, juicy dark berry flavors display impressive depth and sweetness, with gentle, harmonious tannins lending support. Remarkably balanced, pure and luscious, with outstanding persistence on the silky finish. This is one suave wine.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2007

Wine Spectator
Gamy aromas and flavors dominate the soft fruit character in this leathery but distinctive red.

A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background. A very approachable full bodied combination of blueberries, plum, Ribena, mocha chocolate, spice box, vanilla and pepper fill the palate with pleasurable flavours and the balanced soft tannin finish has both length and persistence.

Torbreck-Descendant-Shiraz Viognier-2003-750mL

The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier, which as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig. The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the velvety mouth feel with the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.

Torbreck-Descendant-Shiraz Viognier-2004-750mL

The 2004 Descendant is by far the most impressive release of this wine, the colour making that immediately apparent; completely black/purple with healthy, vibrant magenta hues. A pure, wild, powerful nose of blackberry and tar is complimented by a gentle floral lift of lavender and violets. Fullbodied with great concentration, silky tannins and perfectly judged extract, this vigorous and suave young wine has a long, long future ahead of it.
