Torbreck The Factor Shiraz 2016
The Factor hails predominantly from the Gomersal and Marananga sub-regions of the Barossa, providing dense texture and richness to the palate. Brooding and densely packed, this lavish wine has ample generosity to cellar for many years, where it will slowly unravel its beguiling riches.
A showcase of old vine Barossa Valley Shiraz, this wine stuns with its dense texture and rich palate with subtle notes of olive tapenade, saddle leather and minerals. Ripe aromas of plum and blackberries, olive, pepper and spice are all supported by a dark core of roast espresso and saltbush.
