Description:
The 2013 Vintage was one of high quality, with low yielding crops from the relatively dry winter providing intense deep concentration and structure. Descendant was picked on the 23rd February with clearly defined aromatics and a rich, supple fruit profile. Intense, dark berry fruits with an underlying perfume of violet, lavender and spice. Multi layered, dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly interwoven with nuances of cinnamon, tar, exotic spice and pepper. Full-bodied with great concentration, and silky tannins this suave wine has impeccable balance and a long future ahead of it.
Winery:
Torbreck
Torbreck Vintners was created with the aim of building one of the finest wine estates in the world. The vision is to pay homage to the vineyards of the Barossa Valley, home to some of the oldest vines on the planet. Torbreck Vintners was founded by David Powell in 1994. The roots go back to 1992 when David, who was then working at Rockford, began to discover and clean up a few sections of dry-grown old vines. Near lifeless, he nurtured them back to health and was rewarded with small parcels of fruit that he made into wine. David was able to secure a contract for the supply of grapes from a run-down but ancient Shiraz vineyard. In 2008 Torbreck Vintners was acquired by Pete Kight. Pete has wine interests in both the U.S. and Australia and is committed to ensuring the ongoing excellence of Torbreck wines. He truly believes that our best wines are yet to come.
