This months featured wine

Torbreck  Woodcutter’s Shiraz 2012

Full bodied, rich and opulently textured, the palate delivers plush ripe blackberry and liquorice flavours followed by some dark plum, subtle toasty oak, spice and pepper. Silky smooth beautifully integrated tannins. Has quickly become a firm favourite of all the full-bodied Barossa red wine lovers out there.
