Torbreck The Gask Shiraz 2018

The Gask is sourced from a single plot of Shiraz nestled into the eastern slope of Mount McKenzie in Eden Valley that is painstakingly nurtured by the Knight family.

Planted in 1960 this elevated site yields small, intense berries that possess great intensity of flavour without sacrificing balance and poise.

Heroic in style, it still retains the cooler edge and tighter structure that make the great wines from Eden Valley famous.

Strong winds at flowering at the beginning of the growing season reduced berry and bunch count in many vineyards.  The difficult seasonal conditions continued up to harvest- a dry winter and spring were followed by very hot and dry December and January.  2020 was a difficult season to manage for both grower and winemaker with yields much lower than anticipated. Older vineyards with deeper roots remained steadfast under these conditions and produced small volumes of deeply concentrated wines from the lower yields. Semillon and Viognier were the starring whites, with delicate flavours and aromas. While the yields have been small, the overall quality has created deeply coloured and textured wines that resonate their place of origin.

Alc/Vol: 15.0%
