Since it was founded in 1994 Torbreck has been on a quest to build one of the finest wine estates in the world. Today their vision pays homage to the vineyards of the Barossa Valley, home to some of the oldest vines on the planet. There is a European sense of tradition at Torbreck that means vines planted in the 1840s – many of them Rhone varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvédre – still thrive and bear fruit of unique concentration and flavour. Torbreck pays tribute to these vineyards with minimal intervention, creating wines of richness, structure and length that age gracefully.Torbreck’s RunRig 1998 vintage is the estate’s flagship fine red wine, made from extremely old vines from eight separate premium Barossa Valley vineyard plots. The RunRig combines the sheer fruit intensity of some of the finest Shiraz vines of the Barossa with European elegance – the small percentage of Viognier adding real vitality – and hence the best of both worlds.
