Wine Enthusiast Torbreck Wines, 2013 Torbreck 'The Struie' Shiraz
"With only 12% new oak and 28% of the fruit coming from the cool Eden Valley, this wine may hold more appeal to lovers of Old World Syrah than any other Torbreck bottling. Pepper, bacon fat and mixed berries mark the nose, while the palate is full, creamy and expansive. The long finish includes enough soft, dusty tannins to suggest cellaring through 2030 as a possibility, although itâÄôs delicious now. Wine Creek. EditorsâÄô Choice. âÄîJ.C." â€“Feb-17
Wine Spectator Torbreck Wines, 2013 Torbreck 'The Struie' Shiraz
"Expressive and seamless, bursting with bold wild blackberry and huckleberry flavors, accented by fleshy tannins. Details of white pepper, fresh ginger and smoke linger on the long finish. Drink now through 2026.ďż˝Ă„Ă®"
Small parcels of fruit from old dry grown vines were selected for their individual qualities
and matured for 22 months in new (12%) and seasoned French oak. The wine was assembled in January 2015 and bottled without filtration or fining in March 2015.
