- ABV 15%
- Closure: Cork
Predominately sourced from the Gomersal and Marananga sub regions of the Barossa, the 2016 Factor was matured in a combination of new (40%), second fill and seasoned French oak barriques for a period of 24 months.
Dense inky black core with an equally deep black dark red hue. Wafting out of the glass are decadent aromatics of ripe blackberry, liquorice, dark plum and dark chocolate with vanillin oak, subtle toast, earthy fennel and spicy pepper notes also present. Rich and exceptionally powerful, the opulently textured palate is stuffed with lush blackberry, liquorice and black cherry flavours which meld into smoky vanillin oak, fennel, subtle earthy black olive and spicy pepper nuances. Very polished and silky yet structured tannins with a very long and expressive finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Torbreck's 2016 The Factor incorporates what winemaker Ian Hongell calls their "most structured Shiraz, from a lot of ironstone soils." It spends two years in French oak barriques, half of which were new, so it shows hints of cedar pencil shavings and toasted coconut layered over ripe blackberries and spice. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it finishes long, with terrific energy and drive. It should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines from this lineup. Drink 2020-2040.
