The success of the Factor relies on ultra-careful fruit selection from old vines in Marananga, Greenock, Krondorf, Gomersal & Ebenezer. The parcels are selected for their individual qualities and matured separately in both new and old French barriques.

A typically extravagant Torbreck Factor.

Outstanding super saturated inky black colour with very deep black dark red hue. The nose is very perfumed exhibiting scents of ripe blackberry, black plum and liquorice followed by some dark chocolate, vanillin bean, confectionary and spice. Opulent, super rich and powerful the palate delivers all encompassing flavours of super ripe blackberry, black plum, dark chocolate, liquorice and vanilla. Plush velvety mouthfeel with silky smooth tannins. Outstanding length with exceptionally long aftertaste of black plum, dark chocolate, liquorice and spice.
