Winemaker 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.

TP 93
Tasting Panel

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

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

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+

JH 92
Australian Wine Companion

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.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

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.

Torbreck
Torbreck, founded in 1994 by David Powell, is situated at Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa. Since that time he has produced some of the world's finest 'Rhone varietal' wines, exclusively from Barossa fruit; this has been acknowledged by the wine press in Europe, America and Australia. The overwhelming majority of his vines are dry-grown, nearly all are 80 - 125 years old and are tended and harvested by hand.

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.
