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.

 

 

Professional Reviews

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, Cote Rotie 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



97/100
Wine Spectator
A big wine with an extraordinary sense of elegance, positively glowing with gorgeous blueberry, plum and white pepper flavors that skim across the palate like a sailboat in a perfect wind. Hints of mineral and spice weave through the long, long finish. Classic stuff.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 15 2004



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.

Wine Companion
Dense red-purple; vanilla and cedar surround a rich core of black fruits; excellent extract and length; good oak.
