3 x 2001 Torbreck "The Factor" Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia

Torbreck's The Factor 2001 is a knockout Shiraz made from small parcels of select fruit from old, dry grown, vines which are matured separately in 70% (old) and 30% (new) French oak. The name 'Factor' is taken from the name of the manager on a Scottish highland estate, while Torbreck is named after a forest in Scotland where winemaker David Powell once worked as a lumberjack. Reviews.. "The 100% Shiraz offering, the exquisite 2001 The Factor, aged 24 months in French oak (30% new), possesses a roasted, Cote Rotie character than its Shiraz siblings. Blackberry, blueberry, espresso roast, smoke, and a roasted component are found in this intense, rich effort along with considerable structure, fabulous density, and a broad, deep, profound palate." eRobertParker.com "A big wine with an extraordinary sense of elegance, positively glowing with gorgeous blueberry, plum and white pepper flavours that skim across the palate like a sailboat in a perfect wind. Hints of mineral and spice weave through the long, long finish. Classic stuff." Wine Spectator “David Powell has not let success go to his head, or subvert the individuality and sheer quality of his wines, all created around very old, dry-grown, bush-pruned vineyards.” James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion The 100% Shiraz offering, the exquisite 2001 The Factor, aged 24 months in French oak (30% new), possesses a roasted, Cote Rotie character than its Shiraz siblings. Blackberry, blueberry, espresso roast, smoke, and a roasted component are found in this intense, rich effort along with considerable structure, fabulous density, and a broad, deep, profound palate.Read more

2010 Castello Banfi Poggio Alle Mura (95 Pts WA...97 Pts JS) Brunello

It has now become apparent that 2010 was one of the greatest vintages ever in Brunello di Montalcino and as Monica Larner states below,this 2010 Banfi Poggio Alle Mura was one of the biggest wines of the vintage:- “Wine lovers are rejoicing at the incredibly high quality of the vintage,and rightly so.The 2010 vintage is a new benchmark for Tuscany’s icon wine,producing reds with incredible intensity,structure and energy.I find the depth of fruit,flavor and savory,almost mineral undertone of the wines spellbinding”. James Suckling. (2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vintage Report). "The special vineyard selection 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura opens to brooding dark concentration and an impressive sense of depth. The aromas that characterize the wine are in a school of their own. Instead of the standard red cherry and rose, this expression of Sangiovese gives you rich layers of blackberry pie, Indian spice, cured meat, wet terra-cotta, tar and black licorice. Some 90% of the wine is aged in French barrique and the remaining portion sees large oak casks made with Slavonian oak. Dive further and you begin to sense chocolate and toasted espresso. The tannin management is excellent and there's a distant point of textural firmness that will soften with a few more years of cellar aging. Brunello Poggio alle Mura is one of the biggest wines of the vintage, and you can't knock the quality. Drink 2017-2028". (95 Points). Monica Larner. (The Wine Advocate. #217. February 2015). "A wine that sneaks up on you. It starts up slowly with dried berry, chocolate, and dried lemon character. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A wine that shows such layered and indepth character. Tight and exciting. Give it three to four years more before drinking". (97 Points). James Suckling. (JamesSuckling.com December 2014). No Buyer's Premium payable on this lot.Read more
