THE FACTOR SHIRAZ 2020 - TORBRECK

0,75 L Red Wine / Australia / South Australia / Barossa Valley / 15 % vol / 100% Syrah

A classic, refined Torbreck!
The Factor is a tribute to the unique old Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, and to the winemakers who have tended and nurtured them for so many years. Many of these vineyards were planted in the 19th century and were untouched by the phylloxera epidemic that ravaged the world's vineyards in the 1880s, due to South Australia's far-sighted quarantine policy. They have survived on their own roots for over a century. The Barossa's reputation as Australia's pre-eminent red wine region rests firmly on wines like this. A wine known for its structure and longevity, The Factor offers texture and richness on the palate with subtle notes of olive, tapenade, saddle leather and minerals. Aromas mingle around wild blackberry, Satsuma plum, dark chocolate and five spice, interwoven with a dark core of roasted espresso. This sumptuous wine is well worth waiting several years to slowly unravel its seductive richness.

TORBRECK

David Powell was destined for the accounting profession when an uncle introduced him to the world of vines and wine. He found a job in Rockford, in the Barossa Valley, close to the old vines of Shiraz, of which he would later become a specialty, while traveling in Europe and the United States where he made several harvest campaigns. In 1992 he cleaned a few plots of old abandoned vines on behalf of owners before taking over several hectares in sharecropping. Fascinated by the wines of the Rhône, he is convinced of the potential of the Barossa Valley at a time when the old vines of the region are still being torn down massively. This intuition will quickly be rewarded. In 1994, he founded the Torbreck estate, named after a Scottish forest in the Highlands where he had worked for several years as a lumberjack, and vinified his first vintages in a modest shed. Year after year, he refines the style of his wines, staying true to his original source of inspiration, the Rhône, from venerable strains of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Torbreck is today a major producer of Barossa.
