Roussanne is a deeply coloured grape that's native to native Valley Rhône, employed as a blender into both red and white wines, it introduces fragrant stonefruit and nutty nectarine characters. The Loon is a unique and stylish rendering of Shiraz, as beguiling as it is intense, characterised by its beautifully lifted fruit characters and exquisite balance, made boisterous through the inclusion and co fermentation of Roussanne skins. The Loon matches well with goat, game meats or lamb, a splendid accompaniement to mushroom, provolone or truffle recipes.
Fruit is sourced from the Renshaw property at Marananga, a proven performer for Shiraz and suitable derivation of Roussanne. Torbreck have won peerless international acclaim for their profound efforts at co fermenting Shiraz in the timeless Rhone Valley way. Parcels of Roussanne are gently whole bunch pressed, the skins are de-stemmed and added to fermenting Shiraz. Upon completion, batches are matured fourteen months in a selection of seasoned French oak puncheons and barriques, which consolidate all parts and tame the tannins, without imparting any conspicuous oak. Components are assembled into the finished wine and bottled without fining or filtration.
TASTING NOTES
Bright scarlet colour. Pure and fresh bouquet, distinctive, offering hints of tropical fruit, bright red berries, minerals and graphite. The palate provides a silky, elegant and fine tannin structure, layered with dark fruit flavours, blackberries and plum, hints of dark chocolate with great purity of fruit. A splendid, savoury fruit filled finish, resolving on a length velvet tannins.

About Torbreck Wines
Low yielding, old and dry grown Barossa Valley vineyards are the cornerstone of Torbreck Vintners
Torbreck founder David Powell was immersed in the study of Economics at Adelaide University, when an uncle introduced him to wine. Young Dave realized that grapes could be more intriguing than numbers. He began spending more and more of his spare time in the Barossa Valley and during the winters, he availed himself of the opportunity to venture overseas to work harvests in California and Italy. He travelled throughout the famous wine regions of Europe and even spent time in Scotland as a lumberjack. This experience was instrumental in illuminating the unique attributes of the Barossa, at a time when others felt its heritage was past the sell by date. Torbreck»
