Winery Notes:

One of the deepest and concentrated aromatic Struie wines we’ve  produced, the harmonious combination of both regions has again delivered a wine with 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.

A blend of Shiraz from the Barossa and Eden Valleys, Torbreck's 2016 The Struie brings hints of cracked pepper and mint together with big blueberry fruit, and somehow those turn savory by the long, tannic finish. It's full-bodied and firmly structured, wonderfully aromatic and intoxicatingly complex, and it represents a terrific value in the Torbreck lineup.

Shows an appealing floral overtone to the polished blueberry and blackberry flavors at the core, highlighted by black tea, sandalwood and Kalamata olive notes, lingering on the long, fragrant finish. Shiraz. Drink now through 2028. 650 cases made, 250 cases imported.
