The climatic events have given way to a rich tapestry woven with finessed thread typical of favourable Barossa vintages.
Although Australian in spirit, this Torbeck offering hints at Old World amicability effortlessly blending power with grace and age-worthiness. This duality makes the 2004 RunRig a thrilling prospect for collectors and investors alike.
