Possessing a dense and completely opaque hue this vintage of The 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 tapenade. 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.
A brighter and fresher shiraz than The Factor, with dark chocolate, essency black fruit and a dollop of thyme; the palate is unctuous, but not heavy, with freshness and savoury mineral character providing lift and life to conclude.
