95/100
Wine Companion
Complex licorice, spice and sweet earth overtones to blackberry, plum, dark chocolate and licorice; medium to full-bodied; marvellous tannin management. Barossa/Eden Valley.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2005



93/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2003 The Struie is a 4,000-case blend of cooler climate, high altitude Eden Valley fruit combined with small amounts of Barossa grapes. Aged 8 months in wood (20% new), it is a deep, chewy, fleshy effort displaying floral, peppery, incense notes intermixed with white chocolate, blackberry, and black currant characteristics.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



93/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Explosive, powerful aromas of blackberry, wild cherry, red plum, violet, coffee, licorice candy and peppered bacon. Then silky, suave and creamy on the palate, with concentrated flavors of creme de mure, ripe blackcurrant, anise and exotic oak spice. Finishes long and sweet, with round tannins and a hint of five-spice powder.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2005



91/100
Wine Spectator
Smoky and meaty, with a rich core of blueberry, plum and floral flavors. High-intensity, spreading beautifully on the velvety finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jun 15 2005

Jancis Robinson
Eight parcels go in to this very full, round, sweet blend that has an impressively gentle texture but seems just too sweet, and not acid enough, to me. The finish is still a bit tight and tough. Wait.

Great balance and Rhone qualities
A really lovely aged Australian Shiraz with great body and a piercing acidity that really carries the weight lightly. Very Rhone like indeed. Magic stuff and doubly so at the deal price of less than £12 a bottle.

Our homage to the great old vines of the Barossa Valley, this wine is composed of 100% Shiraz. Complex and concentrated, the wine is cloaked in velvet tannins that will continue to develop for another 10 at least.

 

The Factor is all that you would expect of a pureblood Barossa Shiraz.

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2002-750mL

The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.
