TORBRECK THE FACTOR 2006
I’m interested in this cellar ’cause their low new oak. Could be interesting see the Barossa opulence, without the impertinent new oak they usually use…
Deep, dark and opaque color, very dense.
The nose explodes with cassis, confiturea hint of black chocolate, some earthy aromas and flowers (violet). A huge nose nut still nice, in harmony.
Big mouth here, dense, creamy, sappy, round, well balanced in its opulence, with a non sexy but pleasant sweet finish.
A really super-good wine, opulent and big but affordable and in balance. I will retain this bottle, near Henschke…
