    Winemaker's Notes:

    The name Woodcutter's stems from David Powell's several years spent working the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest. This wine reflects the up and coming Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, rather than the battle hardened old vines which make up the core of their other cuvees.

    Dense, rich and opulent, this wine combines great fruit purity with texture, complexity and finesse. It is elegant, structured and powerful and is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range. Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth the 2011 Woodcutter's Shiraz will no doubt develop into an impressive wine with a few years in the cellar.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Woodcutters Shiraz doesn’t miss a beat in this difficult vintage. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is scented of cassis, black plums and macerated blackberries over nuances of charcoal, black pepper, smoked duck breast and violets. Full-bodied and packed with black berry and savory meat and mineral flavors, it is nicely poised in the mouth with a taut backbone of medium level rounded tannins and just enough acid, finishing with a good persistence of pepper and spice notes.

    This one has personality and depth....give it a chance to breathe, and it comes up delightful. Full bodied, smooth tannins.
