A blend of Barossa Valley (79%) and Eden Valley (21%) fruit aged 18 months in 30% new French oak, Torbreck’s 2017 The Struie is another one of the values to be had from this producer. Marked by pronounced floral and blueberry notes, this full-bodied, creamy-texture rich and concentrated, with just enough spice to keep the palate engaged through the long, velvety finish.

The blend of high and low country fruit fits together seamlessly with delicious results. The bouquet holds blackberry, violet, spices and sooty/earthy undertones. The rich, sweet-fruit mid-palate is backed up by strong but supple tannins and the finish is very long. Drink now or cellar for up to 18 years.

Plush, with concentrated juicy huckleberry and blackberry flavours at the core and a supple body backed up by velvety tannins. White pepper, espresso and mahogany details combine with an air of elegance to persist on the finish. Drink now through 2034.
