Details

JH94 Australian Wine Companion - "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." WS92 Wine Spectator - "Dense, focused and brimming with plum and blackberry flavors, overlaid with wafts of smoke and licorice that come together smoothly on the fine-grained finish. Shiraz. Drink now through 2022." RP92The Wine Advocate - "A blend of Shiraz from the Eden Valley and Barossa, the 2012 The Struie has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of baked cherries, dried mulberries, prunes and dried herbs with hints of menthol and pepper. Very big, full and concentrated in the mouth, the flavors are evolving and expanding gracefully, framed by chewy tannins and ample freshness, finishing long." The Eden Valley lies within the Barossa Range and consists of river valleys and undulating hills covered with large gums, rocky outcrops and Aboriginal sites. It is a high-altitude area of between 400 and 500 metres, compared with the Barossa Valley's elevation of 200 to 300 metres. This higher altitude, with its (one to two weeks) later ripening pattern, results in more distinctive varietal flavour characteristics, lower pH and higher acidities. Whilst the Eden Valley region is most associated with the white wine variety, Riesling, it produces elegant, tautly structured Shiraz which is highly prized by winemakers. This Torbreck Shiraz cuvée from the cooler climate, higher altitude vineyards of Eden Valley is skillfully blended with fruit from Barossa Valley which traditionally provides greater richness and intensity. A blend of 44 year old Eden Valley Shiraz vines and 80 year old Barossa Shiraz, The Struie is aged for 18 months in a combination of old and new French oak barriques prior to bottling.
