Torbreck "The Factor" Shiraz

Winemaker's Notes

Our homage to the great old Shiraz vines of the Barossa Valley and the growers who painstakingly tend and nurture them each year. The Factor displays the concentration & fruit purity that only the most meticulous farming can achieve. Delicate scents of wild blackberries, pipe smoke and pepper are supported by a dark core of espresso roast, black currants and coal. The palate offers tremendous texture and combines great richness with subtle notes of olive tapenade, saddle leather and minerals. Brooding and densely packed, this majestic wine has the constitution to cellar for many years where it will slowly unravel its extravagant riches. . The manager on a highland estate is referred to as The Factor. Having spent two years in predominantly older oak, this wine manages to express true Barossa Shiraz character.

The Factor is old-vine Shiraz from the Greenock sub-region in the Barossa Valley. It is a luscious intense dense wine with date prune and plum flavours and a heart warming intensity of silky tannins with a velvet texture and heroic solidness.

Full red-purple; a powerful, dense bouquet with ripe plum to the fore, then gentle spice and positive oak. The smooth palate has plush, ripe, dark berry and plum fruit, fine tannins, and excellent oak integration.
