Despite a dry winter during 2015, rains in January and March 2016, freshened the older vines and provided long, slow ripening periods in between, which led to a stand-out vintage with high quality fruit.

Torbreck's 2016 The Factor incorporates what winemaker Ian Hongell calls their "most structured Shiraz, from a lot of ironstone soils." It spends two years in French oak barriques, half of which were new, so it shows hints of cedar pencil shavings and toasted coconut layered over ripe blackberries and spice. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it finishes long, with terrific energy and drive. It should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines from this lineup.

Expressive and detailed, with dark chocolate, Earl Grey tea and sandalwood accents to the core of plum compote and blackberry fruit. The flavors and tannins are dense and compact, adding an appealing toothsome quality and showing promise for the cellar. Drink now through 2040. 84 cases imported.
