This has aged with grace. Resolved tannins, bramble blue fruit, blackberries, and red plums, followed by a sweet brioche note. The blue fruit shines on the palate and it has a pleasant roundness without being flabby. Pleasurable now, but on the downside of its drinking window. One bottle left for a cool night to come. — 5 days ago
I reckon if we look at the price range I should rate this wine higher being just over 25 bucks.
However this is very good no matter what
Juicy, vibrant, it has flesh and depth

Apparently he says 2018 is the best crudo shiraz he has made so far — 17 days ago
This is close to perfection
Fairly big body not huge, but driven by an agility, suppleness, drinkability tremendously out of the ordinary
I have had other vintages and I must admit 2012 is arguably the best or close second to the 98.
Statement :I love Clare Valley shiraz, it is surely the most Rhone like 100% shiraz, for the big bold body u need to add malbec or mataro. Almost flawless
Silky tannin and long — 13 days ago
This took a little bit of coaxing to come out. It was very reluctant.
Originally in the decanter for 4 hours. Then Decanted twice more and put through the aerator twice.

This wine is inky dark in the glass and offers up a brawny nose of blackberry, plum and a smidge of tar. Cola and tea notes also appear. The palate shows dark fruit layered with savory spices and mint. The tannic structure is firm, but not overbearing, and the sip finishes dark and medium long.

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. — 19 days ago
Big, dark fruits and jam on the nose, with a hint of cedar. Soft and full mouth feel at first, but some nice tannin that adds grip to the finish. There's good length and complexity to this wine. The flavour profile is excellent, dark fruits and spice - it's rich and full without risking being an over the top fruit bomb. Top wine in my opinion. — a day ago
