TASTE NOTE
Tasting Notes

Intense, perfumed fruits with an underlying layer of lavender and spice. Dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly interwoven with subtle nuances of spice and cinnamon. Fullbodied with great concentration, yet retaining firm yet supple tannins this suave wine has impeccable balance. Descendant will reward you with its immediate charm and can be enjoyed upon release with just a few hours breathing, however, we recommend locking the other bottles away for 5+ years to enjoy its further potential, or better still cellaring for the next 15 years plus.

Torbreck

Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994, when he was able to secure a contract for the supply of grapes from a run-down but ancient Shiraz vineyard. He named his wine 'Torbreck' after a forest in Scotland where he worked as a lumberjack.

David managed to raise enough money to share-farm the vineyard, a practice which involves paying the owner a percentage of the market rate for his grapes in return for totally managing the vineyard. This share-farming principle has enabled Torbreck to use fruit from the very best vineyards in the Barossa Valley, which is home to some of the most precious old vines in the world.

Vineyard

This single vineyard, located next to our winery block on Roennfeldt Road, was planted in 1994 with cuttings taken from our RunRig grower vineyards – some of the oldest genetic vine material in Australia. The deep red clay soils in this vineyard produces fruit that has a glorious perfume, a savoury flavour and a satin-like texture.
