Estate Notes

The Struie is a cleverly thought out blend of fruit from 44-year-old Eden Valley and 80-year-old Barossa vines.

The higher altitude Eden vines gives the wine its European cool-climate elegance, while the Barossa fruit brings power and intensity to this wine. This great marriage has made the Struie a boutique cult wine.

(Torbreck is named after a forest in Scotland where David Powell worked as a lumberjack.)

Reviews

"The 2007 Struie is 100% Shiraz from Barossa and Eden Valleys. It spent 18 months in 20% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports a nose of lavender, game, bacon, and blueberry. Medium to full-bodied, it is light on its feet despite its size, dense, and layered." eRobertParker.com
