Tasting Notes

Due to our success in co-fermenting Shiraz and Viognier, we thought it would be interesting to co-ferment the skins from Roussanne with Shiraz. We selected a Shiraz vineyard in Lyndoch that gave us the perfect structure and purity of fruit to balance the aromatics of the Roussanne. Once the juice was gently whole bunch pressed from the Roussanne grapes, the skins were added to the Shiraz and co-fermented. The resulting wine is as unique as it is intense; beautifully lifted and balanced and surprisingly distinctive. Winery note

Lovely lifted aromatics of plums and mulberries which have been enhanced by addition of Roussanne. This is typical Torbreck showing dusty cedary oak, hint of menthol and a touch of smokiness (similar to a fine bottle of whisky). The wine is luscious, juicy, vibrant and fresh and finishes with great persistence. A very pleasing, moreish bottle of Shiraz (& Roussanne!). Wineaway tasting note, Chris Brace
