Fish's Shiraz

Fish’s Shiraz, is dedicated to 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.

Released in August each year on the anniversary of Simon’s birthday, all proceeds of this wine are donated to Fish’s favourite charity, The Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Current Vintage 2016
Despite a dry winter, rains in January and March, 2016 freshened the older vines and provided long, slow ripening periods in between, which led to a stand-out vintage with high quality fruit.
