Torbreck Run Rig Shiraz 2005 3lt Jeraboam
The Highland clans used a ‘RunRig’ system to distribute land amongst their clansmen in a series of widely dispersed holdings. The emphasis was not on any one farm but rather the communal element of the whole. This is the way Torbreck’s very impressive RunRig Shiraz is made from several old, dry grown vineyards through the Barossa. This plush and complex wine comes in a Jeroboam so you can share the load too.
Possessing a dense, saturated, almost ink-like hue, the aromas of 2005 RunRig are of black raspberries, crème de cassis, smoke, graphite and melted tar which soar from the glass. Full-bodied with great intensity, amazing freshness and extraordinary concentration, the multi-layered palate displays the fruit purity that only the most fastidious farming can achieve. Hints of homemade marmalade, scorched earth and slow-roasted meats later emerge with time in the glass. This lovely drop should be the perfect complement to Lamb Leg Shawarma.
