“Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2012- Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2012 RunRig offers a nose of baked cherries and raspberry preserves with suggestions of violets, cinnamon toast, aniseed and vanilla. Full-bodied with characteristic elegance and poise in spite almost of its power, it has a solid backbone of very finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with great length.” Cork 15.5%-ABV : Tasted July 2015

Matthew Jukes 100 Best Australian Wines -
“RunRig is always an impressive wine. It is powerful, Churchillian and indulgent. Every so often though a vintage comes along which takes me back to the first ever wine which I bought from this world famous estate-1996 RunRig. This was a wine so courageous and unflinching it took people’s breath clean away. 2012 is, once again, just such a wine. I was amazed at the sublime aromatics, coupled with density of flavour and fearless spice. This is an expensive wine, but it makes such an impression it is unlikely you will ever forget it just like I have never forgotten the1996.”
