Torbreck 'RunRig' Shiraz-Viognier 2006

Quick Overview

96pts - Robert Parker

96pts - James Halliday

95pts - Jeremy Oliver

"The flagship 2006 Run Rig is a blend of 95% Shiraz & 5% Viognier. A saturated purple color, it sends up a complex bouquet of cigar box, Asian spices, incense, bacon, plum, & blueberry. On the palate it admirably combines power & elegance. Layers of succulent fruit are nicely complemented by the wine’s generous framework." - Robert Parker

"A very fragrant bouquet attests to the influence of viognier, which also may be part of the reason why the palate does not show the high alcohol, & is simply supple and velvety, even showing a hint of spice." - James Halliday

The RunRig has often drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant & tautly structured wines produced from the steep slopes of the Northern Rhône Valley’s Appellation of Côte Rôtie.

RunRig, although wonderfully aromatic, is a wine that exhibits so much power and latent richness that it could easily be mistaken for the hugely concentrated wines sourced from the sun drenched hill of Hermitage (the historic home of Syrah and some of the worlds most powerful and longest living wines).

Possessing a dense, saturated, almost ink like hue, the aromas of black raspberries, crème de cassis, smoke, graphite and melted tar soar from the glass. Full bodied with great intensity, amazing freshness and extraordinary concentration, the multi-layered palate displays the fruit purity that only the most fastidious farming can achieve.
