Torbreck Descendant Shiraz Viognier 2008

Barossa Valley

  • Product details
    When Torbreck co-fermented this “descendant” Shiraz with Viognier, it was a first in the Barossa; they have since been joined by many others, a testament to the success of this Rhone blend. The co-fermented Viognier gives the wine a spicy lift while the Shiraz imparts layers of dark brooding fruits. Torbreck Descendant Shiraz Viognier has a beautiful harmony of flavour with a matching silky texture and an amazing length, it's just hitting its straps, brilliant with beefy canapés.
  • Tasting notes
    The 2008 Descendant is another impressive release of this wine, the colour making that immediately apparent; completely black/purple with healthy, vibrant magenta hues. A pure, wild, powerful nose of blackberry and tar is complimented by a gentle floral lift of lavender and violets. Full-bodied with great concentration, silky tannins and perfectly judged extract, this vigorous and suave young wine has a long, long future ahead of it.
