    Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2003 6L

    559

    The 2003 is completely opaque, right to the rim of the glass. The nose is also imposing with magnificent notes of lifted spice. Closer investigation reveals wonderfully multi-dimensional but very condensed aromas at this early stage. A dark, rich and concentrated palate displays the up front flavour of apricot nectar, and flows into brooding cassis, anise and tar.

     

    This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve.

    The RunRig has often drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant & tautly structured wines produced from the steep slopes of the Northern Rhône Valley’s Appellation of Côte Rôtie.

     

    The RunRig is a structured, muscular wine with phenomenal density, dry vintage port-like concentration, and magnificent notes of smoke, blackberries, cassis, leather and coffee. A hint of viognier’s sweet marmalade character comes through as the wine sits in the glass.

    The Highland clans used a “RunRig” system to distribute land amongst their clansmen in a series of widely dispersed holdings.

    The emphasis not on any one farm, but rather the communal element of the whole. Shiraz from old dry grown vineyards is blended with viognier, complementing the strengths and complexities of these individual parcels of fruit, whilst giving the resulting wine a further dimension..
