Torbreck Struie Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa Eden South Australia
The view from Struie down towards Dornoch Firth, is as inspiring as the panorama across Barossa's Valley floor from atop the elevated ranges. David Powell assembles Shiraz from ancient, isolated little Barossa vineyards, some are well over a century of age. Sourced from several elevated sites throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys, Struie reflects the cooler side of the region and showcases the subtle nuances which can be gained from hillside viticulture, for a full bodied and powerful, rich red wine of purity, focus and intensity.

Named after a hill which rises above Glenmorangie distillery, Struie is the home of a pub called Altman Arms, where David Powell first heard a band called Run Rig. Sourced from several elevated sites along the Barossa floor, sixty+ year old vines, assembled with forty+ year old vines from Valley Eden. Grapes grown to the Eden's higher altitudes ripen slower and later than their cousins down in the Barossa, resulting in distinctive quality of fruit with a lower pH and higher natural acidity, elegant, tightly structured and highly prized by winemakers. Batches are separately fermented and treated to an extended maturation in a selection of mostly seasoned French oak barriques.
Dense, opaque red. Aromas of black raspberry, creme de cacao and star anise around a fragrant core of braised meat, earth and olive tapenade. Full bodied and tightly structured, the palate exhibits perfect ripeness and brooding richness along with a spine of beautifully integrated acidity and fine tannin that will greatly reward. Beautifully weighted, with an extra dimension of rum and raisin throughout, a Shiraz of remarkable concentration.
