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
