The Struie is where the Torbreck wines begin a bigger jump into a much more crafted quality wine. The one has 20% of of it's fruit from Eden Valley which gives it more elegance. Darker, richer fruits, bigger, bolder, round lush mouthfeel, nice layers of spices and all the wines we tasted had beautiful acidity. This producer is really starting to push their quality further and further. Buy them now before they really begin to ascend in price.

Love Dave's wines even though he has since departed. The Struie is Eden/Barossa in a glass and a little less distinctive than some of the other wines. Still plenty of black berries and cool forest bark with a little spice to match.

Takes me back to my early Australian wine career, pure stewed plums, blackberry, bay leaf. rich mid palate with black fruit and tobacco. Fabulous length and surprisingly balanced acidity. Benchmark.

Deep purple hue, leading to a narrow ruby rim. Pronounced aromas of hedgerow fruit and sweet spice. Fine and ripe tannins that are well integrated. Flavours of blackberries, black cherries, damsons, plums, abd bilberries. Vanilla and cinnamon spices. Long finish. Intense.

All I need to say is this is the #barossa. A great example of what is really being done with #aussiewine and shiraz in this region.
