This shiraz is everything you're looking for in a full-bodied red wine. It's aged in wood (40% new) for 2 years before bottling. This adds a spicy element on the palate that's a perfect match with the near "confit" like, ripe fruit concentration.

Winemaker's Notes:

Torbreck's 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 and 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 reputation of the Barossa as the pre-eminent red wine growing region of Australia rests firmly on wines such as this. This wine scores 96 points at Robert Parker and will - he believes - last until 2020.
