Torbreck Wood Cutters Shiraz
The name Woodcutter's stems from when David Powell spent several years working in the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack or woodcutter in the Torbreck forest. Liks all Torbreck wines it's sourced from hand harvested and hand tended, low yielding vines. It is then open fermented and gently basket pressed, and aged on fine lees for 12 months in large format seasoned barrels and foudres. Althought the wine is constantly praised for being succulent and rich - perhaps the best feature of this wine is it's complexity and texture which is rarely found at this price.
