Named after a hill that rises above the Glenmorangie distillery, The Struie is the home of a pub called the Altman Arms.

The Struie sources fruit from the high altitudes of Eden Valley imparting delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters. While the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper, more brooding flavour and intensity. The combined structure will reward extended cellaring.

The view from the Struie down across the Dornoch Firth is as inspiring as that of the Valley floor from the Barossa Ranges. This wine is a blend of Shiraz from the Eden and Barossa Valleys, combining the best of both regions.

The Wine Advocate
One of Torbreck's newest offerings is the 2002 The Struie, a 100% Shiraz cuvee from the cooler climate, high altitude vineyards of Eden Valley blended with fruit from Barossa, which provides more power and intensity. This structured effort reveals a French-tasting profile, but with the noteworthy ripeness found in a great Barossa vintage. A blend of 40-year-old Eden Valley Shiraz vines and 80-year-old Barossa Shiraz, the 2002 was aged 18 months in a combination of French oak (80% old and 20% new). Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a big, rich perfume of white chocolate intermixed with loamy soil, black cherry, blackberry, pepper, and currant aromas. Intense and medium to full-bodied yet elegant, it should drink well for 10-15 years.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



94/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe, round and decadent, plush in texture, oozing with tarry, chocolaty plum and black cherry flavors that linger beautifully. Picks up all kinds of spicy notes as the finish goes on and on. Should only get deeper with age.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 15 2004

Wine Companion
A cascade of black fruits and spices; medium-bodied but very long and intense; excellent tannin and oak management.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2004



91/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Saturated medium ruby. Open-knit aromas of cassis, liquid smoke, violet and gunflint; very syrah. Superrich and chewy, with complex, expressive flavors of black and white pepper, game and truffle. Finishes long and lush, with sweet tannins and lingering notes of mocha and woodsmoke.
