2013 Torbreck Woodcutters Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Ready? Ground lamb awaiting a spoonful each of cinnamon, cumin and coriander with a handful of pine nuts and currants all whirred together in the cuisinart and blended into the lamb. Let it sit, whip together some greek yogurt, mint and garlic, barbecue those lamb burgers and enjoy the entire mess on a piece of naan with your wine. This incredible combo works well with any fruit forward shiraz such as this intensely dark-fruited example or Gnarly Dudes or Moppa.

"Dense, rich and sublime, the 2013 vintage has an opulent vibrancy combining dense, fruit purity with real texture, complexity and finesse. It is an elegant, structured and powerful example and is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range. Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth the 2013 Woodcutter’s Shiraz will no doubt develop into an impressive wine with a few years in the cellar."
"Like all wines in the Torbreck stable, the fruit is sourced from hand harvested and hand tended plots throughout the Northwestern Barossa Valley. It is fermented in our cement, wooden and stainless steel vats for 6-7 days and then basket pressed to well seasoned hogsheads and French oak foudres for 12 months. It is bottled without the use of either fining or filtration. 15% alc."
"94 pts ... Part estate, part contract-grown. Strongly coloured, this has more grunt and depth to some of its predecessors, with savoury black fruits occupying centre stage, ripe tannins stationed in the wings to block any escape. Drink through 2028."

$35.99New Vintage! What a crazy good wine! An intense core of dark fruit is surrounded by cinnamon spice and fragrant wood aromas and flavors. The finish is filled with spice, fine tannins and more dark berry flavors. Surprisingly tasty with a miso-soy chicken broth with sauteed tofu and broccoli.

$17.99No way are we going to compete with the winemaker's excellent notes. Suffice it to say we find this delicious wine lightly fruity on the front and nicely dry on the finish.
