2018 TORBRECK RUNRIG BAROSSA VALLEY SHIRAZ

$189.99

The Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2018 just scored DOUBLE 99 POINTS! If you enjoy the Best Wines in the World, you gotta try this one!

Torbreck was founded in 1994 with a passionate goal to produce wines from old vines in the Barossa Valley with the same refinement and appreciation as the legendary Rhône Valley. Nearly two centuries ago, in the 1840s, European immigrants began planting vines in the region, focusing on Rhône varietals such as Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, many of which remain today, producing intensely concentrated fruit.

Many compare RunRig Shiraz to Syrah from Côte Rôtie, an extraordinary compliment considering the elegance, grace, and exclusive charm of wines from the northern tip of the Northern Rhône. The 2018 vintage received a wet winter followed by a dry spring and summer, producing small, concentrated berries with low yields, resulting in this magnificent, super high-scoring Shiraz, which ranks among the world’s top wines.

WA99 | From Robert Parker The Wine Advocate,

“Torbreck’s 2018 RunRig needs a bit of air right now, as the nose and palate truly open up and expand after a while in the glass. Unlike some vintages, it’s rather tight and cedary upon first pour, then relaxes to reveal hints of stone fruit, blueberries, cherries, pastry crust and baking spices. In the mouth, it’s full-bodied and concentrated, richly textured and marked by ripe tannins, which leave behind a velvety, mouth-coating finish tinged with licorice and dark berries. While approachable now—and even damn enjoyable—it deserves another several years in the cellar…“ ROBERT PARKER 99 POINTS

99D | From Decanter Magazine,

“The must-try wine Tightly wound yet with cashmere tannins, soft kid-glove oak and cut-finger minerality. The anise, clove and cinnamon-edged palate is unbelievably svelte, like melted chocolate. On day two, succulent, spicy cherry fruit emerges, with blackberry liqueur, roses and violets. Savoury cep undertones, graphite and cedar follow through on an endless finish. A stunning blend of six old vineyards, one planted in the 1850s. Drinking Window 2025 – 2040.“ DECANTER 99 POINTS

JS98 | From James Suckling,

“A really complex wine already, this has aromas of blackberry, tar and dried spice, as well as blueberry and gentle, herbal edges. The essence-like blackberries and dark plums are delivered in a rich, full-flavored style. Great old-vine shiraz from a stunning vintage. Try from 2026.“ JAMES SUCKLING 98 POINTS
