Torbreck The Struie Shiraz 2018 1.5L Magnum
This Torbreck Shiraz is a skilful blend of fruit from a 40 year old Eden Valley Shiraz vineyard and an 80 year old Barossa Shiraz vineyard delivering a marriage of elegance and intensity.
"Deep crimson; the wine is archetypal Torbreck style, sweeping away all before its flavours of blackberry, licorice, spice, tar and oak click in, the alcohol just part of the scenery, as are the ripe tannins." 97 points, James Halliday

Vintage 2016 - Earth, briary blackberries, anise, sweet raspberry. It's a tried and true formula for Torbeck but it works. The alcohol is high but the finish remains fresh; it almost feels refreshing. Chocolate and dried date character add to the impression of power.

Vintage 2016 - A rich, luscious shiraz that successfully pushes the limits of ripeness without any overcooked influences and still manages to retain a hint of Rhôney shape and style. Backed by nuances of baked earth and a hint of stalkiness, it’s musky and deeply perfumed, with dense aromas of mulberries, cassis, dark plums and redcurrants lifted by spicy notes of cracked pepper and a sweet floral aspect. It’s full to medium-bodied, smooth and succulent, with a deep, layered presence of black and red berry fruit wrapped in velvety tannins, tight-grained cedary oak plus a refreshing acidity.
