Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from several elevated sites throughout the Barossa & Eden Valleys, the Struie reflects the cooler side of the region and showcases the subtle nuances that are gained from hillside viticulture. The cool conditions experienced in the Barossa Valley during the 2011 Vintage have enhanced the naturally elegant and fine qualities that the Struie is renowned for.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark and rich with spice, blackberry and sweet plum;lovely depth and rich texture; structured and long."
93 Points

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2011 The Struie is a Shiraz blend from the Barossa and Eden Valleys. It has an indulgent nose of blackcurrants, black plums and mulberries embellished with an undercurrent of black pepper, loam and Chinese Five Spice plus a whiff of Provencal herbs. Packed with taut, blackberry flavors in the full-bodied mouth, it has a firm level of chewy tannins and crisp acid to support the long and slightly herbal finish. Drink it now to 2022+.
Rating: 92+"
92 Points

"Deep purple-crimson, amazing; 100% shiraz from the Barossa and Eden Valleys, a last gasp rescue from '11 thanks, one assumes, to the Eden Valley component; it is a potent and complex wine, with strong savoury/briary undertones to its sombre black fruits."
