Torbreck-The Struie-Shiraz-2004-6L

Producer: Torbreck
SKU: 575
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Named after a hill that rises above the Glenmorangie distillery, The Struie is the home of a pub called the Altman Arms. This is where David Powell first heard a band called Run Rig play! When poured, the density and depth of the 2004 Struie is immediately apparent; completely black/purple with an opulent magenta tinge. A floral hit of violets makes way for the more brooding aromas of tar, chocolate, licorice and coffee with a subtle hint of cinnamon and spice.

 

The rich, luscious palate of great concentration envelopes the mouth and silky smooth tannins compliment and complete this elegant blend. 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.

96/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2004 The Struie is 100% Shiraz from 40-60-year old and 120-year old vineyards. Half of the fruit is from the Eden Valley and half from the Barossa, and the wine spends 18 months in French oak (20% new). An exotic bouquet of blackberries and other sweet fruits is followed by a full-bodied, powerful, rich red with great purity as well as focus, a laser-like precision, huge intensity, and a blockbuster finish that lasts nearly a minute. It will be even better with 2-3 more years of bottle age, and should last for two decades.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



94/100
Wine Spectator
A rich Shiraz, with pinpoint focus and impressive depth. Compelling purity of plum and cherry fruit, with a rogue hint of apricot, and the suggestion of coffee and caramel, as the finish persists. Seductive now for its gorgeous flavor, it should improve with cellaring.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Oct 15 2006

Wine Companion
Good colour; bursting with layers of juicy, sweet, blackberry, plum, cherry and dark chocolate fruit flavours; oak and tannins just a backdrop.
, James Halliday Issue: Feb 2006



93/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Saturated ruby-red. Deep, powerful and exotic on the nose, with explosive aromas of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, rose pastille, baking spices and cracked pepper. Lush and velvety, the red and dark berry flavors showing excellent depth and beguiling sweetness, but not at the expense of clarity. As delicious as this is right now, a few years of patience should bring even more complexity.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2006
