"" Torbreck, "Runrig", in 2009 - a stunning wine, promises to be one of the best we've ever done. The vegetation period was ideal for flowering. After the heat at the end of January and February followed quite mild and dry weather, allowing grapes to develop and ripen the grapes perfectly slowly. During this period, we have been patient, and perfectly ripe berries. These factors have led to the development of incredible aromatic compounds in wine, so we decided not to add, as usual, Viognier grapes. This wine has a lot of different aspects and nuances that will constantly change and evolve. This wine was truly one of the greats of our wines! "- Says winemaker company" Torbrek. "
