Torbreck Vinters 'The Descendant'
Intense, perfumed fruits with an underlying layer of lavender and spice. Dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly interwoven with subtle nuances of spice and cinnamon. Full-bodied with great concentration, yet retaining firm yet supple tannin,
this suave wine has impeccable balance. Descendant will reward you with its immediate charm and can be enjoyed upon release with just a few hours breathing, however, we recommend locking the other bottles away for 5+ years to enjoy its further potential,
or better still cellaring for the next 15 years plus.
“Descendent is one of my favorite Torbreck bottlings year after year, and this may be the best one yet.” 98/100
Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate.
“Shiraz co-fermented with 8% viognier, this has aromas of spiced blackberries and dark plums with chocolate notes, too. The palate has a round, silky feel with a mouthful of spicy dark-plum flavors, wrapped around long, even tannins. Impressive now, but even
better in five years”. 96/100
