Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2016
This is one of Torbreck's finest reds boasting a two-decade life. It is a wonderfully aromatic wine with power and latent richness and certainly reward decades in the cellar.
The 2016 RunRig is an accurate display of what can happen when blending six unique parcels of old vine Barossa Shiraz with just a splash of viognier. Silky smooth, luscious and textural, with dark red fruit and milk chocolate.,

Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
Vintage 2016 - 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 throughout its entire two decade life (it may live longer from cold cellars or in larger formats), but if I were lucky enough to have a bottle or two, I’d try the first one about 10 years out.
