Wine tasting notes

Full of deep, dark berry fruit, the 2016 vintage is one of the richest and most complex Woodcutter’s of recent years. It is rich, opulent fruit with a wonderful freshness and balance. An incredible deep, central core of dark fruit gives way to an intense textural mid palate full of cassis, plum, spice and dark chocolate.

Winery Information

Torbreck

While working at Rockford Wines in 1994, David Powell discovered and began to clean up a few parcels of old, dry-grown vines. Near lifeless, he slowly nurtured them back to health and was rewarded when a couple of the plots began producing enough fruit that he could start experimenting with his own ideas on wine production. Starting in 1995, David was able to harvest and crush a total of three tonnes of grapes, carefully fermenting them in his make-shift winery, a simple shed on his 12-hectare.. read more

Vinification Notes

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.
