Torbreck Vintners The Struie Barossa Valley Shiraz 2011

$49.99

Low yielding, old and dry grown Barossa Valley vines are the cornerstone of Torbreck where traditional, manual winemaking methods and minimal intervention are combined to produce world class wines. One of the best Shiraz from Australia we've ever tasted!  94 Points Wine Enthusiast93 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple in color, The Struie displays intense black fruit, blackberry and blueberry scents that show some licorice and chocolate notes plus a touch of pencil lead. Meaty, full and rich, it is densely packed with fruit and framed by firm, grainy tannins and a long, fresh finish. Approachable now, drink it from to 2021."

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.

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.

Well, I like it. Severely precise. Don't shy away from this. Not a good food wine.

Love this winery/winemaker and I have the fondest memories of my visit there, but this wine didn't do it for me. Not enough umph.
