There's a signature to Torbreck reds, a polished yet sexy appeal to the plush fruit and florals. The Struie is no exception. Plump, plummy fruit and drying flowers are backed by soft, peppery spices and subtle charred notes, like pan scrapings after a roast. The alcohol shows a touch on the palate, and there's some oaky bitterness at the finish. But there's also a lovely line of satiny fruit to counteract the drying tannins. It's a high octane wine, with plenty for big red lovers to enjoy. Drink 2021-2035.
