Professional Reviews

96/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2003 The Factor (100% Shiraz aged 24 months in old French oak) is a riveting effort that displays the exquisite talent of David Powell. Its smoky perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with cherries, acacia flowers, and espresso roast is followed by a full-throttle, multi-layered palate as well as a 60-second finish. This stunning Shiraz should drink well for 10-15+ years.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



96/100
Wine Companion
Immensely powerful and concentrated aromas; a full-bodied, richly robed array of black fruits, spice, licorice, vanilla and chocolate; persistent, ripe tannins. Ultra-careful fruit selection has paid big dividends.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2005



91/100
Wine Spectator
Rich and ripe, displaying a peppermint character that adds interest to the generous blackberry and cherry flavors. Firm tannins support the nicely focused finish.

Torbreck The Struie Shiraz 2003 750mL

The Struie sources fruit from the high altitudes of Eden Valley imparting delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters. While the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper, more brooding flavour and intensity. The combined structure will reward extended cellaring.

Two Hands Lily's Garden Shiraz 2004 750mL

Wow, This one scares me! Amazingly dense black in colour, the bouquet is expressive and filled with plums, mocha, aniseed, coffee, Asian spices and melted chocolate with secondary notes of clove and tobacco.

 

The mouthfeel is dense, lush and sweet with an oozy density and a layered fruit driven palate, this Lily’s is more like the 2002.

Torbreck RunRig Shiraz 2003 750mL

The 2003 is completely opaque, right to the rim of the glass. The nose is also imposing with magnificent notes of lifted spice. Closer investigation reveals wonderfully multi-dimensional but very condensed aromas at this early stage.

A dark, rich and concentrated palate displays the up front flavour of apricot nectar, and flows into brooding cassis, anise and tar. This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve.
