Exceptional Langtons Classification. RunRig was a system that the highland clans employed to distribute property and holdings. It appropriately defines the Torbreck flagship, crafted from small yields of the most precious hand sorted Shiraz, picked off a canon of very old, dry grown vineyards. The emphasis is never on any one proprietor or farm, but rather the communal elements of the whole. RunRig is a wine which exhibits so much power and latent richness, that it is compared with the epicly structured and perfumed first growths of Côte Rôtie.
The old, sun drenched vineyards of Barossa can often be affected by significant droughts, restricted canopy growth, low nutrient levels and tiny yields. Fortunately, the Old Vine RunRig blocks thrive in these conditions and the quality of fruit is truly remarkable. Shiraz from Lyndoch and Greenock, Seppeltsfield and Moppa, Ebenezer and Rowland Flat, are gently de stemmed into open top wooden and concrete vats for a week of ferment on skins. After basket pressing, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned and new, French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and thirty months maturation, treated to a single racking for clarification, assembled with Viognier and bottled without fining or filtration.
TASTING NOTES
Dense, saturated, inky colour. Delightful aromatics, layers of raspberry and graphite, melted tar and smoke soar from the glass, apricots and creme de cassis cloaking subtle hints of cherry and black olive. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding anise and dark chocolate, all bound by tight, grainy tannins.

More 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»
