Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2009

Grape Variety: Shiraz
2009 proved to be a stunning vintage for Torbreck and this RunRig promises to be one of the best they have ever made. The growing season was ideal during flowering and fruit set and some shatter in the Shiraz restricted yields in some of their key blocks. A heat wave in late January and early February was followed by perfectly mild and dry conditions, allowing the vines to recover and the fruit to ripen slowly. Through this period they were patient allowing them to pick theirold vine RunRig parcels when they were flawlessly ripe. These factors culminated in the development of some incredible aromatics in the wine, so much so that we decided the Shiraz in 2009 did not require its usual addition of Viognier. The tannin structure is beautiful and the wine flows effortlessly from wonderful perfume to a lithe, dense and complex palate. This wine will prove to be one of the truly great RunRigs.
