Torbreck-The Factor-Shiraz-2001-1.5L

Producer: Torbreck
SKU: 527
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

The Factor is assembled from separately vinified parcels of un-irrigated Shiraz grapes grown in several sub-regions viz. Marananga, Greenock, Krondorf, Gomersal, Kalimna & Ebenezer. Following vinification these wines are matured in both new and old French barriques before they are blended and bottled without either fining or filtration.

 

Aromas of blackberry, pipe tobacco smoke, black currants and roasted coffee beans with a palate suggestive of olive tapenade and minerals as well as the trade mark saddle-leather so typical of high quality Rhone red wines made from this grape variety.

 

Complex and concentrated, the wine is cloaked in velvet tannins that will continue to develop for another 10 years at least. The Factor is all that you would expect of a pureblood Barossa Shiraz.

98/100
The Wine Advocate

The 100% Shiraz offering, the exquisite 2001 The Factor, aged 24 months in French oak (30% new), possesses a roasted, Côte-Rôtie character than its Shiraz siblings. Blackberry, blueberry, espresso roast, smoke, and a roasted component are found in this intense, rich effort along with considerable structure, fabulous density, and a broad, deep, profound palate.

WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



96/100
Bev Portal

2001 is an exceptional vintage for Barossa Shiraz. The Factor was tasted from a Magnum bottle (1.5L) and decanted for three hours.

Concentrated Shiraz with expressive aromas of black fruits, black olive-tapenade and leather. ‘’Powerful’’ describes this wine but it is well balanced with integrated Tannins and a fantastic finesse.

Coriole-Mary Kathleen Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot-2001-750mL

The mild conditions of this vintage resulted in a wine that is dark and dense in colour. Fragrant cassis and chocolate are abundant. A powerful palate showing great richness, structure and length. Very approachable in its early years due to the incredible fruit sweetness but 5-7 years is recommended to fully reveal the charms of this wine.

Torbreck-The Steading-Grenache Shiraz Mataro-2002-750mL

The melding of the three traditional Barossa varieties creates a tremendously complex and rewarding wine.

 

The Grenache and Mataro are from old bush vines that are pruned in the traditional ‘goblet’ style to a limited number of buds, reducing yields and promoting flavour and colour concentration. Only the free run component of the Shiraz is used in the blend to allow the Grenache identity to shine through.
