Winemaker Notes

The 2008 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.

Critical Acclaim

JH 93
Australian Wine Companion
Deep, dense ruby; the bouquet is full of dark fruits, oak and lots more, the palate predictably full-bodied, but the high alcohol really does impose itself on the palate. For Torbreck lovers this may be no problem, but for others it will be a different matter.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Very deep garnet colored with a faint rim of purple, the 2008 The Factor has pronounced notes of raisins, Christmas cake, chocolate box, dried mulberries, sandalwood and baking spices. Very full and buxom in the mouth, the generous, fleshy fruit has a good line of crisp acid to lend freshness and a medium to firm level of chewy tannins, finishing long and a little warm.

Torbreck, , Australia
Torbreck, founded in 1994 by David Powell, is situated at Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa. Since that time he has produced some of the world's finest 'Rhone varietal' wines, exclusively from Barossa fruit; this has been acknowledged by the wine press in Europe, America and Australia. The overwhelming majority of his vines are dry-grown, nearly all are 80 - 125 years old and are tended and harvested by hand.

The wines have an extraordinary combination of power, intesity, complexity and great finesse, and bearing in mind the age of the vines and the laughably low yields, no Torbreck wine could ever be accused of being heavy, cloying or over-extracted.
