Torbreck Shiraz Descendant 2005, 6L (WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Torbreck Shiraz Descendant

6L

Vintage: 2005
Region: Australia
Appellation: Barossa Valley

WA97
Rated 97 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Descendant is composed of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier which are co-fermented. The fruit is sourced from a relatively young vineyard in Marananga planted with 11-year-old cuttings from the Run Rig vineyards and aged for 18 months in 2.5-year-old French barrels previously used for Run Rig. Opaque purple, with glass-coating glycerin, it offers up a complex array of lavender, violets, blueberry, blackberry, and fresh road tar. Full-bodied, on the palate the wine has great concentration with a noticeable uplift from the Viognier, gobs of spicy black fruits, opulence, and well-concealed tannins which will carry this wine for 10-15 years of further evolution. Drink it through 2030.
