Torbreck The Loon Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Deep purple and impenetrable in colour, this is fresh, young unencumbered and pure Barossa Shiraz (with a small percentage of Roussanne added); liqueur-soaked black fruits, sage, spices and a rugged aspect to the palate is offset by a generous and richly textured finish, without the least sign of heaviness.

In essence, this is a variation on the shiraz with a hint of viognier theme, except that here they've substituted rousssanne, a less fruity white grape, but one that offers terrific structure and texture. The nose is all meat and spice, quite rustic in style, with some dark plums and earthy notes. The palate's mid to full in size, with plenty of ripe dark plum fruits, a sheen of meaty complexity and fine, swirling, soft tannins. Very approachable - Drink young.

A new arrival on the scene for Torbreck,'Loon' the name of a young, boisterous Scottish boy, which is how David Powell describes this shiraz/ roussanne blend. The bouquet is complex, with some tanned leather notes that also come through on the palate, which has lifted, energetic character to the black fruits and Asian spices also present. Interesting.
