Torbreck The Loon Shiraz Roussane 2016

  • $33.00*

A young Scottish lad is often reffeed to as a Loon which is an appropriate name for this young, boisterous shiraz roussanne. Produced using 90% shiraz and 10% roussanne, the resulting wine is as unique as it is intense; beautifully lifted and balanced
and surprisingly distinctive.
Winemaker Notes

Due to our success in co-fermenting Shiraz and Viognier, we thought it would be interesting (and fun) to co-ferment the skins from roussanne with Shiraz. We selected a Shiraz vineyard on our Renshaw property in Marananga that has proven a perfect match for the Roussanne skins. Once the juice was gently whole bunch pressed from the Roussanne grapes, the skins were de-stemmed and added to the fermenting Shiraz.

The resulting wine is as unique as it is intense; beautifully lifted and balanced and surprisingly distinctive. The bouquet is pure and fresh offering hints of tropical fruits, bright red fruits, graphite and mineral. The palate provides a silky, elegant and fine tannin structure showing blackberries and plums, hints of dark chocolate and purity of fruit.
