Torbreck The Laird 2008


Torbreck The Laird 2008
2008 proved to be a very difficult year for Torbreck with a great growing season ruined by a record heat wave in March that lasted for 16 days. The majority of our Shiraz was shriveled and over ripe but the dry grown, old vines that yield and sustain the Laird fruit produced phenolic ripeness with uncanny timing. The Laird was the 16th block we picked in 2008 and came in on the 3rd of March; just as the heatwave began. The wine is rich and complex with perfectly judged tannin and divine balance. The 2008 Laird is truly a testament to the mastery of Malcolm Seppelt and his patch of dirt. It is amazing that such a special wine can still be created under such difficult circumstances
