Torbreck The Struie Shiraz 2018
The Eden Valley produces elegant, tautly structured Shiraz highly prized by winemakers and this wine expertly blends this single vineyard fruit with old vine Barossa Shiraz. The result is a marriage of elegance and intensity.
The Struie is a wonderfully aromatic and deeply concentrated wine delivering layers of dark chocolate characters and defining structure. Nuances of plums, blackberries, violets and spice enhance the natural elegance and tension of the fruit quality.

Vintage 2013 - A blend of Barossa and Eden Valleys. An extremely powerful and complex wine, with a major question hanging over its head in the form of tis alcohol; there is an ocean of black fruits, but the alcohol warmth is a take it or leave it issue.

Vintage 2017 - Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 "The Struie" has a very youthful crushed black berry and black currant nose with licorice, dark chocolate and tar suggestions. Full-bodied with a taut, muscular palate and solid backbone of chewy tannins, this is a sturdy, rugged style, which should mellow a bit with a few years in cellar.
