Monday 27th July, 2015 - We are delighted to release the new vintage of Fish’s Shiraz.
The Fish’s Shiraz, is named after Simon “Fish” Fisher who worked at our cellar door. His dry sense of humour and passion for wine endeared him to Torbreck staff and customers alike, until his unfortunate early passing in 2008.
This wine is a celebration of his life and is sourced from the vineyard bearing his name overlooked by the staff in front of the winery. This small vineyard was planted in 2007 and is hand harvested and immediately transferred to the winery where it is destemmed into open stainless steel fermenters. It is inoculated with EC1118 yeast after 24 hours and spends 6-7 days fermenting on skins before being basket pressed. The wine is then transferred to well-seasoned French Hogsheads for 12 months. The 2014 Fish’s Shiraz was bottled without the use of either fining or filtration on the 14th of May 2015.
All profits raised from the sale of this wine are donated to Fish’s favourite charity, The Royal Flying Doctor Service.
To date we have raised just under $80,000 for this fantastic charity.
0nly 120 Dozen produced.
2014 Fish’s Shiraz is $29.50 per bottle and available online - Torbreck Purchase Online
