THE LATEST WINE ADVOCATE REVIEWS HAVE BEEN RELEASED AND TORBRECK SCORES A PERFECT 100/100 AGAIN.
From: Barossa Valley, South Australia
Deep garnet-black with a hint of purple to the colour, the 2010 RunRig taunts at first with a slightly closed nose before it engages with subtle kirsch, preserved plum, dried mulberry and Christmas cake notes intermingled with hints of violets, cinnamon stick, mocha and game. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly concentrated, the palate astonishes with incredible poise for such a big style as it perfectly balances the wine’s generous fruit flavours with firm, velvety tannins and seamlessly vibrant, lively acid. It finishes with incredible persistence. Delicious now, it should drink best 2016 to 2028+. Lisa Perrotti-Brown NW
With the 2005 and 2008 Laird both receiving perfect scores over the last few years, this time it was our flagship 2010 RunRig.
After last year’s impressive 2009 RunRig receiving 99 points both the winery team, led by Craig and the vineyard team led by Jason were confident that this was the best RunRig ever made.
Many wineries around the world dream of getting one perfect score from Robert Parker. Craig and his team are in an amazing purple patch with three 100/100 in the last 4 years. Other top scores from this years Wine Advocate reviews includes:
2010 THE FACTOR – 97+
2010 DESCENDANT – 96
and a true indication of the vineyard and winery teams skill and commitment to quality is a score of 92 POINTS for the 2011 STRUIE. To deliver a wine of that quality from what many called the most difficult vintage in 40 years shows how hard they work to attain perfection.
