The name Struie originates from a mountain in the rugged highlands of north-east Scotland, which overlooks Torbreck forest near Inverness. The view from the Struie down across the Dornoch Firth is as inspiring as that of the Valley floor from the Barossa Ranges. While the Eden Valley region is most associated with the white wine variety, Riesling, it also produces elegant, tautly structured Shiraz which is highly prized by winemakers. This Torbreck Shiraz cuvée is a skilful blend of fruit from a single vineyard Eden Valley Shiraz and old vine Shiraz from the Barossa Valley’s Western Ranges – a marriage of elegance and intensity. 

"Barossa Valley & Eden Valley) Very deep, bright, bold purple/red colour, with a slightly subdued but spicy aroma which also carries some of the graphite of the Barossa floor. The wine is full-bodied and ample, big and bold, with abundant soft tannins and lovely balance. A big but elegant wine whose texture is finely- grained, not coarse. Such generosity, allied to such elegance. (25% Eden Valley)" 95 pts, Huon Hooke, The Real Review


"The 2018s are from a more typically solar year, with greater muscularity and fleshy tannins. The combination of power and elegance which is the hallmark of Torbreck really comes out in these 2018s. 2018 was a perfect vintage, less stress relief on vines.
From plots in Barossa and Eden Valleys. Darker broader rich flavours of Barossa and bluer finer fruit of 25% Eden Valley. Finer notes of pure Shiraz, needs a lot more time to settle."
