Tasting Notes :



Torbreck The Factor Shiraz, 2018.

"From old vines—some well over a century—in two subregions of northwestern Barossa,

this has all the classic Torbreck red hallmarks.

 With a nose you could drive straight into, it's a bottomless well of plump plum,

blackberry, mocha, black olive and bay leaf, with a cedar base notes.

 The mouthfeel is luscious with concentrated fruit and powerful, well-placed tannins.

 There's some alcohol heat here and a sheen of high gloss oak, too,

but like a well-tailored suit or a timeless black dress,

it has decades of shelf life and will always be in fashion. 

Drink over the next 20 years. Christina Pickard"
