The Struie is a wonderfully aromatic and deeply concentrated wine produced from the harmonious combination of both regions, delivering layers of dark chocolate characters and defining structure. Nuances of plum, blackberries, violets and hidden spice characters all further enhance the natural elegance and tension of the fruit quality. The Struie will certainly age tremendously well over the next decade.

A blend of Barossa Valley (79%) and Eden Valley (21%) fruit aged 18 months in 30% new French oak, Torbreck's 2017 The Struie is another one of the values to be had from this producer. Marked by pronounced floral and blueberry notes, this full-bodied, creamy-textured sexpot is rich and concentrated, with just enough spice to keep the palate engaged through the long, velvety finish.

Shimmering violet. Smoke- and spice-accented dark berries, cherry liqueur and vanilla on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering appealingly sweet, penetrating black raspberry, cherry-cola and floral pastille flavors that are underscored by a smoky mineral quality. Fine-grained tannins build steadily on a long, floral-driven finish that leaves spicy white pepper and violet notes behind.

Rich and concentrated up front, with complex and seamless notes of blueberry, huckleberry and wild blackberry, with details of cedar, violets, and white pepper. Finds plenty of harmony on the finish, with hints of mocha and supple, velvety tannins. Drink now through 2030. 300 cases imported.

This wine is from a selection of fruit from across the Barossa and so has less site character than some of the single-vineyard wines, but that distinctive Torbreck signature of plush fruit, polished oak, plenty of alcohol and oodles of charm. Fistfuls of dried mint, oregano, bay leaf and crushed violets partner with blackberry, blueberry, baked clay and the toasty, chocolatey notes of high end barrels. On the tongue, it's rich and satiny, with a touch of alcohol heat and oak influence but it still shows lovely fruit that's all soft corners. Drink now-2028.
