- Torbreck Descendant
The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier which, as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig.The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier. 'From the cuttings taken from old vines used to plant the vineyard, and the viognier skins the shiraz was crushed onto, to the barrels it was matured in, this wine is directly descended from RunRig'. David Powell

"Exceptional" (RunRig Shiraz); "Excellent" (Descendant Shiraz Viognier) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV
"Since 1994 Torbreck has been committed to creating exceptional Rhone style red and white wines reflecting the very best vineyards in Australia’s famous Barossa." - Torbreck
"one of Australia's best-known high quality red wine makers" - James Halliday
"...home to some of the oldest vines on the planet... The Torbreck endeavour is based around the classic Rhone varietals of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, from mostly old vines scattered throughout the microclimates of the Barossa. Whilst Torbreck specialises in making red wines, there is Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne planted on our Descendant vineyard which we blend into white wine. The first wine was the 1995 Runrig crushed from just three tonnes of Shiraz and Viognier grapes.
Torbreck’s long term vision of 100% estate produced and bottled wine reached completion in 2008 when a new winery and administration facility was opened on land acquired from a next door neighbour. This facility enables our grapes to be handpicked, vinified into wine using the best available equipment, matured in temperature controlled cellars and then bottled ‘on the estate’ using a state of the art bottling line, before being shipped to many of the world’s best restaurants and fine wine retailers." - Tourism Barossa
