External Reviews for Torbreck Shiraz Barossa Valley the Factor
A textbook Shiraz, with all its components in the right places: Therersquo;s big plum fruit on the palate backed by oak and earth: aromas are of pine and wheat. Aged in 30% new French oak.
A new offering, the 2001 The Struie is 100% Shiraz made from equal parts old vine Eden Valley and Barossa Valley fruit. It was aged 18 months in French wood of which 20% was new. A firmly-structured, chocolatey, earthy effort, it displays large-scaled flavors, good acidity, and high levels of firm tannin along with mouthfilling extract and substance. It is a big wine with a cooler climate character than Torbreckrsquo;s other offerings. Give it 2ndash;3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 12ndash;15.

Rich, ripe and distinctive, not at all heavy but gloriously expressive, playing out its generous blackberry, cherry and plum fruit on a deftly balanced frame, all of it echoing along with hints of sweet spice and cream on the long finish. Shiraz, wit... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2001 Torbreck Descendant 750ml
This has a distinctly spicy, savory, meaty quality to its aromas, possibly due to the one-third of the blend that comes from Eden Valley. Those elements impart great complexity to this wine, building on its core of blackberry fruit. Like all the Torbreck wines, this shows a rich, layered texture and a long finish. Drink now-2020.
Bright ruby. Deep, spicy blackberry and cassis aromas, along with a range of incense, floral and mineral accents. Sexy licorice candy and cola notes emerge with air and are repeated on the palate. Sweet dark berry flavors are nicely firmed by youthful tannins and brisk acids, with a late-arriving cinnamon note adding interest. The impressively pure, long finish is suave, silky and fresh.
