2004 Torbreck The Struie Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$44.99 Bottle
  • Cellar 3 - 4 years (2009-2010)
  • ABV 14.5%
  • Closure: Cork

Robert Parker describes DAVE POWELL as "unquestionably one of the worlds finest wine producers (who) has an uncanny ability to discover old vine Barossa vineyards and then secure long term contracts for them."

The Struie is made from 40 year old vines grown in the Eden Valley and 80 year old Barossa vines. 18 months barrel maturation occurs in a combination of new and old French oak. The Eden Valley component imparts delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters, while the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper, more brooding flavour and intensity. The vines are low yielding and dry grown. An impressive red. Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Perfumed nose, with top notes of violets followed by dark plum and spice. The palate has excellent weight with ‘joosy’ mouthfeel. Flavours of chocolate, spice and plum are overlaid with a touch of vanilla. Fine grained tannins. Aftertaste of plum, vanilla, chocolate and spice.
Cellar 3-4 years (2009-2010)
Alc/Vol: 14.5%

Good colour; bursting with layers of juicy, sweet, blackberry, plum, cherry and dark chocolate fruit flavours; oak and tannins just a backdrop.

"James Halliday - 2007 Australian Wine Companion"

The 2004 The Struie is 100% Shiraz from 40-60-year old and 120-year old vineyards. Half of the fruit is from the Eden Valley and half from the Barossa, and the wine spends 18 months in French oak (20% new). An exotic bouquet of blackberries and other sweet fruits is followed by a full-bodied, powerful, rich red with great purity as well as focus, a laser-like precision, huge intensity, and a blockbuster finish that lasts nearly a minute. It will be even better with 2-3 more years of bottle age, and should last for two decades.
