The purple/black 2006 The Factor is 100% old-vine Shiraz from the esteemed Greenock sub-region of Barossa Valley. It spent 24 months in 30% new oak. The aromatic array of balsam wood, smoke, pepper, espresso, blueberry, and licorice is eye-opening. This leads to a rich, glossy, full-flavored Shiraz with layers of succulent fruit, ripe tannin, exceptional spiciness, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will evolve for another 8-10 years and will have a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate, Feb 2009

The only cloud on the horizon concerns the winery’s ramped up production during a period of economic hard times.||There are three white wines in the Torbreck portfolio. Wine Advocate.February, 2009

Torbreck’s wines are widely regarded as exceptional. Torbreck captures the essence of the finest vineyards in Barossa Valley, home to some of the oldest vines in the world. Blockbusters these are not – Torbreck’s modern-style Australian wines are beautifully elegant and display a superb freshness that pays homage to the Rhone Valley. A low percentage of new oak is used across the range, apart from the super-cuvée The Laird, which was awarded 100 points by the Wine Advocate for the 2005 vintage.
