The name Woodcutter's stems from David Powell's several years spent working the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest. This wine reflects the up and coming Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, rather than the battle hardened old vines which make up the core of their other cuvees.
Dense, rich and opulent, this wine combines great fruit purity with texture, complexity and finesse. It is elegant, structured and powerful and is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range. 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.
Blend: 100% Shiraz
