Torbreck Vintners

Les Amis Grenache 2009

If someone served this to me blind I’m pretty sure I’d be able to tell this was from Australia.... but in a good way. If you like a lot of toasted oak slathered in berries, this is for you. Long, long 60 second finish. It’s not 98 points but it’s very good — 2 hours ago

Hillside Vineyard Grenache 2017

Delectable - this is a new Cuvée for Torbreck brought to the Toowoomba Wine Show Dinner by Torbreck winemaker Greg McGill. This was the 2017 Hillside Grenache. A good Grenache but I still think McLaren Vale is better for the variety than the Barossa. — 17 days ago

@Clive McNish Not sure if Yangarra from McLaren Vale gets to the US but their High Sands Grenache is winning everything over here and is sensational. Thanks for the heads up on the Kalleske.

@Bob McDonald I’m a sucker for Head Old Vine! (Would one day love to try the ancestor vine)

Vintage Port Barossa Port Blend 1971

This is the real stuff to look for here down under, never been disappointed by these relatively old vintage port(I know we kind of shouldn't call them port, but that's what's on the label)
1971 is an extremely well reviewed year too
I hope to find few more bottles of this magic potion so that I can share it with friends.. yeah😔, I had to drink this one in my own

Galway Vintage Reserve Claret 1967

This is holding up beautifully at 50 years old with exceptional provenance. It’s a classic Australian Claret with some supple red fruit intertwined with earthen and suede like feels - 1967 — 8 days ago

Mother Vine Monopole Shiraz 2016

Rich, jammy drippings of sun soaked grapes captured in a bottle. An earthy, mineral edge makes it a classic Barossa Shiraz. A little more body and vibrancy would have made it a topper. — 5 days ago

Godolphin Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2004

Showing more primary fruitnotes than expected. Hardly any secondaries yet and the flavor profile comes across as slightly confectionary...
Puzzling...
My last bottle (3 years ago...) showed more evolution and therefore a better balance.

RunRig Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Another Torbreck brought to the Toowoomba Wine Show Judges Dinner at the Downs Club by winemaker Greg McGill. Earthy perfume - a solid full bodied palate 15% ABV. Given 100 points by Joe Czerwinski of Wine Advocate. Never seen the value in Run Rig for the plus $200 price tag. A certain mystique here and one of the Barossa icons but don’t get the hype to be honest. — 17 days ago

Two Hands

Gnarly Dudes Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

This is one big, bold Shiraz. The wine colors up as inky black as night and smells of black fruit, leather and meat. On the palate, it’s a large time as well. Oak is pronounced, but it seems about right considering how brawny this wine drinks. Tannins are somewhat mellow, however, so it goes down easily.

Plexus RMV Roussanne Blend 2017

Lovely southern Rhône white blend from the Barossa at Heckfield Place, The Sun House restaurant - partnered both fish and meat dishes well. — 18 hours ago

Seppelt

Dorrien Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This is one of the ultimate Southern Hemisphere wines in the world. Made only great years, last vintage was 1998. This will last another 20 years, easily. Still takes awhile to open and honestly, I don’t know that I’ll ever know all of its secrets. Barely any fade after 23 years. A wine for the ages. If we are still alive in 20 years, I’ll open another. One of the best kept secrets from Australia. Good luck finding it, this vineyard’s grapes are now put into Seppelt’s reserve cab. — 17 days ago
