Vineyard: The name Woodcutter’s stems from David Powell’s several years spent working the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest.
Vinification: Like all wines in the Torbreck stable, the fruit is sourced from hand harvested and hand tended plots throughout the Northwestern
Barossa Valley. It is fermented in our cement, wooden and stainless steel vats for 6-7 days and then basket pressed to well seasoned hogsheads and French oak foudres for 12 months. It is bottled without the use of either fining or filtration.
Bouquet: Dense, rich and opulent, this wine combines great fruit purity with texture, complexity and finesse.
Palate: It is elegant, structured and powerful and is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range.
Cellaring: Whilst offering immense pleasure in its youth the 2012 Woodcutter’s Shiraz will no doubt develop into an impressive wine with a few
years in the cellar.
