Intense, perfumed fruits with an underlying layer of lavender and spice. Dense dark cherry and blueberry fruit is perfectly interwoven with subtle nuances of white peach, spice and cinnamon. Full-bodied with great concentration, yet retaining soft supple tannins this suave wine has impeccable balance. Of all the Torbreck wines the Descendent needs patient cellaring. Its immediate charm can be enjoyed upon release with just a few hours breathing, but we recommend locking the other bottles away for at least five years to enjoy its full potential, cellaring for the next 15 years plus.

Torbreck's next tier down from its premium RunRig is once again a massive yet characterful and complex wine. A nose of coffee, grilled red and black fruit, meat and a myriad ground spices wrap around an earthy core. Satiny in texture with heaps of toasty oak, the fruit is concentrated and the tannins are structured with a lovely texture. Still a baby, this will cellar for many years: 2021-2034 and likely beyond.

Sleek and powerful, with a juicy quality to the cherry, blueberry and plum flavors. Dried sage, black tea and dark chocolate notes linger on the finish. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2028. 300 cases made, 150 cases imported.
