Torbreck-Descendant-Shiraz Viognier-2004-750mL

Producer: Torbreck
SKU: 519
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

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.

98/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2004 Descendant, an old oak-aged blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier from a 12-year old vineyard, offers up notes of blackberries, ink, sweet truffles, and acacia flowers. There are 1,000 cases of this full-bodied, intense, rich blockbuster.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



96/100
Wine Companion
Almost impenetrable purple-red colour; marries elegance bordering on restraint with intense blackberry fruit and viognier lift; controlled oak, tannins and alcohol.
, James Halliday Issue: Feb 2006



93/100
Wine Spectator
Stylish, round and generous, a supple mouthful of licorice-scented currant, plum and cream flavors, all beautifully modulated, yet the finish lasts and lasts, echoing the fruit and spice enticingly.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Aug 31 2003



93/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Primary aromas of berry skin, violet, freshly roasted coffee, high-fat chocolate and cinnamon. Very fresh in the mouth, with dense but tangy flavors of cassis, blueberry, mocha and fruitcake. Impressively concentrated and focused wine. With air, this deepened in flavor but gave up nothing in finesse. Finishes sweet and quite long, with an exotic chocolate note and bright acids.

Torbreck-The Struie-Shiraz-2003-750mL

The Struie sources fruit from the high altitudes of Eden Valley imparting delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters. While the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper, more brooding flavour and intensity. The combined structure will reward extended cellaring.

Torbreck-The Factor-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Our homage to the great old vines of the Barossa Valley, this wine is composed of 100% Shiraz. Complex and concentrated, the wine is cloaked in velvet tannins that will continue to develop for another 10 at least.

 

The Factor is all that you would expect of a pureblood Barossa Shiraz.

Two Hands-Lily's Garden-Shiraz-2004-750mL

Wow, This one scares me! Amazingly dense black in colour, the bouquet is expressive and filled with plums, mocha, aniseed, coffee, Asian spices and melted chocolate with secondary notes of clove and tobacco.

 

The mouthfeel is dense, lush and sweet with an oozy density and a layered fruit driven palate, this Lily’s is more like the 2002.
