Torbreck The Struie 2016
Sourced from several elevated sites throughout the Barossa & Eden Valleys the Struie reflects the cooler side of the region and showcases the subtle nuances that are gained from hillside viticulture. Possessing a dense and completely opaque hue the 2011 Struie has a wonderfully healthy sheen and great viscosity. The initial aromas of black raspberries, crème de cacao and star anise yield to a fragrant core of slow roasted meats, scorched earth and olive tapenade. Full bodied and tightly structured the palate shows phenomenal ripeness and brooding richness along with a razor-like spine of beautifully integrated acidity and mountain like tannin that will greatly reward those with the patience to cellar it.
