Torbreck Wines, 2012 Torbreck 'The Factor' Shiraz

"The fragrance and poise of the 2012 Factor shiraz are exciting. This is arguably the best they've made with fine, complex spices and tar. Some toasty oak asserts itself but doesn't dominate and there's a tarry, black-fruit element with some graphite. This has richness and balance. Super-concentrated blackberries and sweetly spiced plum-fruit flavors combine with fine tannins. Very dense, super fresh, muscular, lithe, sturdy and assertive. This has all the makings of a modern Barossa classic."

Torbreck Wines, 2012 Torbreck 'The Factor' Shiraz

"Medium garnet colored, the 2012 The Factor has a nose of baked cherries, blackberry preserves and prunes with spice box and incense nuances. The palate is dense and rich with dried berries and fruit compote flavors accented with baking spices and framed by grainy tannins, finishing long and surprisingly gentle."

The manager on a highland estate is referred to as "The Factor". Thus, this wine is a homage to the great old Shiraz vines of the Barossa Valley and the growers tend and nurture them each year.

Small parcels of fruit from old dry-grown vines are matured separately for approximately 24 months in both new and old French barriques. Bottled without filtration nor fining.
