James Suckling
Torbreck Wines, 2015 Torbreck Shiraz 'The Struie'

"Lots of soy, stone, iodine and oyster shell with blue and black fruits. Full to medium body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy and long finish. The quarter of Eden gives this complexity and length. Drink now."
Torbreck Wines, 2015 Torbreck Shiraz 'The Struie'

"(17 percent new French oak; 15.5 percent alcohol) Lurid violet. A powerfully scented, complex bouquet evokes boysenberry, cherry preserves, licorice, five-spice powder and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with sweet black and blue fruit, spicecake and violet flavors that show a surprisingly light touch for their heft. Supple, slow-building tannins gently frame the broad, smoky finish, which hangs on with strong, floral-dominated persistence."
Wine Advocate
Torbreck Wines, 2015 Torbreck Shiraz 'The Struie'

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 The Struie has a very youthful crushed black berry and black currant nose with licorice, dark chocolate and tar suggestions. Full-bodied with a taut, muscular palate and solid backbone of chewy tannins, this is a sturdy, rugged style, which should mellow a bit with a few years in cellar."
