95 points Decanter: "The fragrant bouquet of creamy Christmas cake leads into a multifaceted palate of black fruit, prune, spice and cassis with affably dry, chalky notes. Bursting with quality. " K&L Notes: Platinum - Best in Show: Best Value Red Rhône Varietals - Decanter World of Wine Awards, 2017

94 points James Halliday: "Matured for 15 months in French oak (10% new). Richly robed in luscious fruits supported by gentle tannins and a dab of oak. It is well made (of course) and is strongly Barossan in temperament. What you make of this will depend on your personal preference." (08/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro blend, the 2015 Plexus has a pale to medium garnet-purple color and nose of kirsch, red currant jelly and raspberry preserves with hints of Chinese five spice, hoisin, roses, black pepper and un...

97 points James Halliday: "60% Barossa Valley, 40% Eden Valley grapes, open-fermented with submerged cap, matured for 15 months in new (33%) and used French hogsheads. Deeply coloured; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavours are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange. " (08/2018)

91 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Lively, spice-tinged aromas of cherry and dark berries, joined by slowly emerging woodsmoke and floral nuances. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that fan out slowly on the back half. Fine-grained tannins shape the very long, spicy finish, which shows very good clarity and lift. (JR)" (10/2017) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "There’s a silken texture to the tannins, and tight, fresh strawberry notes to the fruit, if you’re patient and give this wine plenty of air. It might st...

92 points Decanter: "The richer counterpart to Bin 128, this warm-climate blend of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Padthaway fruit (no Upper Adelaide or Wrattonbully fruit in this vintage) is a deep, primary dark ruby colour. And yet it's from a cool growing season, with the harvest finishing a month later than the previous year. It displays a subdued, spicy richness of aroma spliced with a hint of cooler vintage pepper. The palate though is typically generously fruited, with blackberry fruit infused with Penfolds’ trademark toasty vanillin American oak - an u...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick colored, the 2005 Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Vineyard gives up stewed tea, tobacco and tilled earth scents over a core of plum preserves, mincemeat pie, cherry cordial and chocolate box plus touches of truffles and smoky bacon. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has compelling earthy accents and a good long finish. (LPB)" (12/2018) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched dark fruit preserve aromas show a superripe, decadent character, w...

94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful, refined and punchy young red. There’s a lively edge to it with charcoal and licorice to the dark fruit. Medium-bodied, firm and lively. Tight and focused with linear tannins. Drink or hold. " (06/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It's another successful vintage for this wine, which gives consumers a taste of the Torbreck style at a reasonable price. The 2018 Woodcutter's Shiraz offers raspberry and mulberry flavors, a full-bodied, plush, supple palate and savory hints of mocha and black olive on the...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Shiraz Seven Acre is an opulent hussy boasting magnificent fruit concentration, enormous body as well as length, and surprising elegance and purity. As always, the fruit and vineyard character dominate because no new oak is utilized in these offerings. (RP)" (10/2004)


100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet-purple in color the 2008 Grange reveals a truly decadent nose with tons of spices, fruit cake and black & blue fruit compote notes along with nuances of chocolate and potpourri. The full and rich, multi-layered palate has a little oak still showing, it is going through a little bit of a structural stand-out stage, but it doesn't detract on the long and complex finish. It still needs a good few years to develop, though this very opulent, expressive Grange shows the very best of this vintage and t...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A near-perfect wine is the 1998 Shiraz Creek Block, a wine made from 62-year old Shiraz aged in a combination of new and French oak. Sadly, there are only 100 cases of this opaque, purple-colored, full-bodied classic. The wine shows terrific notes of beef blood, new saddle leather, blackberry liqueur, smoke, and earth. Extremely full-bodied yet seamless, with dazzling levels of extract and ripeness, this is a tour de force in winemaking, but sadly, there is too little of it. It looks to have the potential to go 2...


2017 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Back In Stock!
93 points James Suckling: "Loads of brambleberries and dried elderberries are framed against dried meat, bark, vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Plush yet energetic on the palate, this weaves round, chewy and decadent tannins and runs them through a luxurious tapestry of dark fruit. Drink now or hold." (06/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic and stylish, opening with violet, white pepper and subtle sweet cream notes. The core gushes with huckleberry and wild blueberry flavors, revealing shades of rosemary and apricot. Supple and smooth, with tan...

98 points James Suckling: "Dark fruit with iodine, muscle shell and hints of coal on the palate. Full-bodied, very tight and structured with steely tannins that give incredible length and poise. The greatest Factor I have ever tasted. Driven and brilliant. Better after 2021." (05/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Torbreck's 2016 The Factor incorporates what winemaker Ian Hongell calls their "most structured Shiraz, from a lot of ironstone soils." It spends two years in French oak barriques, half of which were new, so it shows hints of ced...

98 points Decanter: "Viognier (6%) is co-fermented with Shiraz from RunRig cuttings planted in 1994. Like a great Côte-Rôtie, it starts with a thrilling nose and doesn’t let up until a week after you’ve put down the glass. (MJ)" (08/2019) 97 points James Suckling: "A wine that really sits at the heart of the Torbreck DNA with plenty of blackberries and plums. Graphite and dark chocolate, too. There’s a beautifully exotic peppery and spicy edge here. The co-fermented viognier really is exceptional. The length and build on the palate is phenomenal and th...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet colored, the 2009 Ancient Way Vineyard Deep Time was in barrel for 60 months and has a pronounced, provocatively scented nose of Christmas cake, plum pudding, Indian spices and incense with suggestions of cardamom, eucalyptus, mocha and peppered salami. Big, rich and full-bodied, the velvety textured palate is bursting with black berry preserves, raisin cake and exotic spices with a refreshing lift on the very long finish. 2018-2038 (LPB)" (07/2018) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, fashioned from 15-year-old vines that yielded one ton of fruit per acre, reveals classic, intense aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with loamy soil, new saddle leather, and vanilla notes. Aged in neutral French oak for 26 months, this beauty is one of the finest Cabernets Greenock Creek has recently made. (RP)" (10/2004)


96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The massive 1998 Shiraz Seven Acres performed better than it did in its youth. A nuanced, complex bouquet of black fruits, forest floor, graphite, licorice, and leather precedes a peppery, full-bodied Shiraz of extraordinary concentration, density, freshness, and vivacity. While vibrant, exuberant, and huge, it is not over the top, nor does it exhibit any evidence of wood. (RP)" (06/2009)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A backward wine is the 1998 Shiraz Apricot Block. Made from relatively young vines (7 years in age), this 100% Shiraz shows an opaque garnet/purple color and a sweet nose of melted asphalt, smoke, blackberry, and cassis. Extremely full-bodied with great intensity, tremendous purity, and impeccable overall harmony among its rather large-scale elements, this dense, super-extracted wine should be at its best between 2004-2020." (06/2001) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated medium ruby...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Torbreck’s flagship is the 2005 Run Rig, a 97% Shiraz cuvee sourced from 120- to 160-year-old vines with 3% finished Viognier added before bottling. It spent 30 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it has a kinky, exotic bouquet of fresh road tar, smoke, lavender, black pepper, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, the wine is dense, packed, and unevolved. It will continue to open up over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2040 in the style of...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Flamboyant as well as focused, with laser-like precision, the 2002 Shiraz Alice’s was produced from 7-year-old vines. Dense, with remarkable intensity and wonderful freshness, it is a cool climate Barossa Shiraz with good acidity, enormous concentration, and a backward style that promises to be ethereal with 4-5 more years of bottle age. It should last for two decades or more." (10/2005)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From 16-year-old vines, the inky/purple-tinged 2003 Shiraz Seven Acres was aged 28 months in American wood, but it has soaked up all its vanillin characteristics, exhibiting a beautifully sweet nose of blueberries, blackberries, tar, and crushed rocks. Dense, full-bodied, and opulent, this stunning Shiraz is a candidate for “Shiraz of the Vintage” in 2003. Drink it over the next 15+ years. " (10/2006)
Price: $109.99

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored with a touch of remaining purple at the rim, the 2012 The Laird is one of those wines you could just go on smelling all day. It opens with a complex perfume of kirsch, dried mulberries, blackberry tart and spice cake over cloves, mocha, dusty earth, incense, star anise, yeast extract and aged beef. The full-bodied palate is drop-dead seductive, unfurling in the mouth to reveal exotic spice, meat, earth and berry preserves layers, supported by firm, velvety tannins and seamless acid. The finis...


100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier made just prior to bottling, the 2016 RunRig is a complete masterpiece. It kicks off with elegant notes of pencil shavings accenting blueberries and blackberries on the nose, then shows incredible, palate-staining intensity of fruit in the mouth. It's full-bodied, plush and velvety without being unstructured and manages to be fruit-forward yet savory on the long-lasting finish, where it picks up hints of mocha and black olives. This should be drinkable with pleasure througho...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2002 Shiraz Apricot Block (only 10-year-old vines) was produced from fruit cropped at 1.5 tons per acre. Its big, peppery, floral, blueberry, blackberry, pen ink, and vanillin-scented bouquet is followed by a wine with a nervous energy that is totally in keeping with the cool 2002 vintage. Dense, with great purity of fruit, a fabulously multi-layered, full-bodied palate, and an inky finish with enormous concentration, sweet tannin, and superb overall balance, this young, unevolved Shiraz should beg...




98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made with fruit coming from 3.5 acres of 100-year-old vines, the deep garnet-purple colored 2005 Shiraz is a 17.6% alcohol wine that spends more than 40 months in oak. The nose flaunts beautiful notes of black fruit preserves, sandalwood, mocha and dark chocolate allied with licorice, earth, toast and a subtle nuttiness. Very big, rich and concentrated, the full-bodied palate is framed by medium to firm, very fine tannins and a vibrant line of acid that gives nice lift at the end. This gorgeous wine shows a very,...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Chris Ringland Shiraz is from another top vintage. Like the other wines, it spent 42 months in new French oak. Aromas of scorched earth, pencil lead, espresso, black currant and blueberry lead to a dense, complex, youthful wine with layer upon layer of succulent fruit, impeccable balance, and a decade of aging potential. Chris Ringland is a relatively modest bloke who gives most of the credit for his extraordinary wines to his nearly 100-year-old vineyard. He now has 21 vintages under his belt the res...


97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Chris Ringland Shiraz has according to Ringland, "changed dramatically in the last year, getting denser". Nevertheless, it is not as saturated in color as the two previous vintages and is more advanced in its development. It is still a brilliant wine with glorious aromatics including spice box, fruitcake, dried fruits, and blueberry preserves. Savory, ripe, and elegant on the palate despite its size, it should be cellared for another 5 years and will give pleasure through 2023. The 2004 Chris Ringlan...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Shiraz Apricot Block, 360 cases produced from microscopic yields of .9 tons of fruit per acre (8-year old vines), tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol, and was aged in both new and old large American barrels (called hogsheads) prior to being bottled unfiltered. A candidate for “wine of the vintage” in the Barossa, it possesses an opaque ruby/purple color as well as tremendous fruit intensity, enormous body, great purity, and a skyscraper-like mid-palate and texture. This dense, chewy Barossa classic has a fi...


94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (from 10-year old vines) may only have a "modest" 13.9% alcohol, yet it is a sensational wine. Its opaque saturated purple color is followed by copious amounts of cassis, earth, and spice aromas. There is superb concentration, huge body, outstanding purity, and a multi-dimensional, thick, viscous, concentrated finish. It is a blockbuster Cabernet Sauvignon that will be drinkable young because of low acidity, but will evolve for two decades. (RP)" (04/1999)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The single vineyard 2004 Exile is fashioned from a northern Barossa Shiraz vineyard. A stunning, 100% new French oak-aged blend of 85% Shiraz and the rest primarily Mourvedre, it is a wine of extraordinary intensity as well as aromatic purity. Blackberry, espresso roast, scorched earth, and flower characteristics are found in this full-bodied yet elegant, well-defined effort. (RP)" (10/2006) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark, saturated violet. Huge, expansive bouquet of tarry blackcurr...

2015 Torbreck "RunRig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (1.5L) 1-pack in OWC
New!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Who would've thought that in the context of Barossa Shiraz, the 2015 RunRig would seem like a relative bargain? It's certainly much less expensive than Grange or Hill of Grace will be when they're released. It's also more approachable in its youth, with enormously appealing aromas of grilled fruit, savory complexities and rich, velvety tannins. Of course, it's full-bodied and concentrated, with the stuffing to age for up to a couple of decades, and it has a long, licorice-tinged finish. Winemaker Ian Hongell, who...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even more intense than the 2003, the 2002 Exile is a superb example of this fabulous vintage in Barossa. Black/purple-colored with sensational purity, a blackberry liqueur, cassis intensity, and beautifully integrated wood, alcohol, and tannin, this large yet brilliantly balanced effort can be drunk now, but promises to age effortlessly for 10-15 years." (10/2005) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and generous, teeming with spicy, peppery, slightly earthy blackberry, cocoa bean and tar flavors, finishing with fin...

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2016 Glaetzer "Bishop" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (95JH, 92RP, 91WS, 90JS, 90W&S). James Halliday: "From 35-120o vines, open-fermented, post-ferment maceration, matured for 15 months in 40% new hogsheads, 90% French, 10% American. Deep crimson-purple; a complex wine, both in terms of its savoury flavours and its texture. Black fruits provide the core of the palate, with graphite, earth and tannins all on parade. It has absorbed and totally integrated the oak, which suits the wine to a T." (08/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 & 2015 Penfolds Shiraz Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2013 Penfolds "St. Henri" Shiraz South Australia (97RP, 96JS, 94DC, 93WS) and 1-bottle of 2015 Penfolds "RWT" Shiraz Barossa Valley (97JH, 97JS, 96DC, 95RP, 94WS, 90WE). Of the 2013 Penfolds "St. Henri" Shiraz South Australia,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "This 2013 Shiraz St Henri follows in the blockbuster footsteps of the 2010 and 2012. The blend is 96% Shiraz with 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the fruit sources are far and wide, including a real mix of terroirs: McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Padthaway and Port Lincoln. It spent 12 months in 50+-year-old casks. Deep garnet-purple colored, the youthfully reticent nose is complex, offering loam, aged meat, licorice, tar, scorched earth, fenugreek and cloves over a cherry cordial, blueberry pie and dried mulberries core. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals lovely, understated elegance and depth with a firm b

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (96RP, 95JH, 93BC, 92JS, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dramatic, intense and powerful, the 2016 Amon Ra Shiraz recalls the 2004 in its youth, crammed with layers of fruit, complex, savory elements and rich, velvety tannins. It's full-bodied, characterized by notes of grilled meat, espresso, black olive, cassis, vanilla, baking spices and an undercurrent of loamy earth. Yes, it's unapologetically big and bold, the product of a warm, sunny climate and ripe grapes, but it does show a sense of decorum, restraint and elegance on the long finish. (JC)" (08/2018)

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2005 Two Hands "Deer In The Headlights" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (92RP, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Shiraz “Deer in the Headlights” offers a fragrant perfume of cedar, leather, lavender, pepper, and blueberry compote. Ripe, round, and deep, the wine is velvety textured with hints of chocolate emerging on the mid-palate. The finish is long and fruit-filled. (JM) 92+" (10/2017)
