Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

Torbreck The Factor Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
In the early 1980s, due to lack of demand, the government paid incentives to growers to rip out their vines and gut some of Australia's most precious old vineyards. The movement to cool climate viticulture made the Barossa, of all places, look rather irrelevant. The Factor is Torbreck's salutation to those dedicated growers who stood by their vines and continue to painstakingly produce small harvests of the most splendid Shiraz. A wine of immense concentration and great purity of fruit that only the most meticulous husbanding of vines can achieve.

The experience with old vines Shiraz began after a discovery of derelict sites around the Barossa. David Powell took an interest and nursed them back to health, he was rewarded by the proprietors with small parcels of fruit which he made into wine. The formula has served to produce profound efforts which are recognized as some of Australia's most distinguished wines. Parcels of Shiraz on old dry grown vineyards at Gomersal and Kalimna, Rowland Flat, Ebenezer and Marananga are selected for their quality and individual charm, separately vinified and matured up to two years in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, followed by assemblage and bottling without fining or filtration.
Deep scarlet with robes of tawny red. Delicate scents of wild blackberries, pipe smoke and pepper are supported by a dark core of espresso roast, black currants and coal. The nose expresses soil, earth and vinuous tones of vibrant black jelly fruit. The palate offers tremendous texture and combines great richness with subtle notes of olive tapenade, saddle leather and mineral. Brooding and densely packed, this majestic wine continues to slowly unravel its extravagant riches.
