Winemaker's Notes

Intense, lifted aromatics are released as soon as the wine is opened; dark cherry crème de cassis and hints of nutmeg all come to the fore with an underlying opulent fruit profile of black olive, cassis and plum. A dark, rich and silky palate with deep red cherry fruits, clove, lavender & liquorice all interwoven with hints of sweet spice and cinnamon. The layers and diverse fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass with anise, hints of almond, earth, blackberry and pepper all becoming more apparent as the wine evolves in the glass.

A rich, opulent RunRig 2013 will certainly reward those with patience.

2013 Torbreck RunRig Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2013 Vintage) says
Torbreck’s famed Barossa shiraz, with a touch of viognier. All the pretty power. This is rich and porty but there’s no shortage of life and lift. It pours on the flavour and turns up the scent. It’s all malt and chocolate, thick blackberry, bitumen and cloves; toast. A wave of earthen, warm, grainy tannin crushes through the back half, a surf-able swell of dark fruit swept along with it. The flavours here are too ripe, too bold, overcooked and all that, but it slams impact and length on the table and keeps smiling at you as it beats its fist. It’s an excellent rendition of RunRig’s take on how things should be done.
