    Winemaker's Notes:

    Possessing a dense and completely opaque hue the 2007 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 tapenad. 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very similar colour to RunRig, despite no vigonier; a more obviously focused wine on the bouquet and palate alike, black fruits and oak pushing other characters to the sidelines. The suspicion is this wine may emerge as the better of the two in a decade or so.

    The 2007 Struie is 100% Shiraz from Barossa and Eden Valleys. It spent 18 months in 20% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports a nose of lavender, game, bacon, and blueberry. Medium to full-bodied, it is light on its feet despite its size, dense, and layered. It has enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for 3-4 years. It will offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2022.

    Inky ruby. Heady aromas of cassis, boysenberry, candied plum and licorice, with notes of cocoa powder and dried flowers coming up with air. Deeply concentrated dark berry flavors are given a bitter edge by cherry pit and black cardamom notes, with velvety tannins adding structure. A very smooth shiraz whose sweet, penetrating black and blue fruit flavors cling impressively on the finish.
