Torbreck continues to take advantage of dry-grown, old vines to make some of the Barossa's most demanded wines. Torbreck's The Struie is a 'Shiraz cuvée'; a skilful blend of fruit from a 40 year old Eden Valley Shiraz vineyard and an 80 year old Barossa Shiraz vineyard - a marriage of elegance and intensity.
The 2020 Torbreck The Struie Shiraz is a wonderfully aromatic and deeply concentrated wine produced from the harmonious combination of both regions, delivering layers of dark chocolate characters and defining structure. Nuances of plum, blackberries, violets and hidden spice characters all further enhance the natural elegance and tension of the fruit quality. The Struie will certainly age tremendously well over the next decade.
"With an average vine age of 50 years, the Struie is Torbreck's shiraz sourced across the Barossa (80%) and Eden (20%) Valleys aged in French oak (20% new) for 20 months. I've always liked the Struie; the Eden Valley component seemingly opening the wine up a little, perhaps gifting it a subtle red-fruit underlay, some sage and certainly some quartz-like tannin heft. Some impressive fruit depth and purity of display here with some bonus cellaring potential. 93 Points. 15% alc. Drink by 2035. Cork"-Dave Brookes, winecompanion.com.au.
