Torbreck The Struie 2011
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Dark and rich with spice, blackberry and sweet plum;lovely depth and rich texture; structured and long.
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+.
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.
Grippy tannins underlie the generous core of blueberry and black cherry fruit, contained by hints of savory white pepper and wet hay, lingering gracefully. Shiraz.
The wines have an extraordinary combination of power, intesity, complexity and great finesse, and bearing in mind the age of the vines and the laughably low yields, no Torbreck wine could ever be accused of being heavy, cloying or over-extracted.
