Random Wine Review: Torbreck, The Struie, Shiraz, Barossa, Australia 2011

Torbreck, The Struie, Shiraz, Barossa, Australia 2011

image

Appearance: A clear, packed red ruby with nary a clear edge.

Aromas: Proud aromas of fresh spearmint leaf, desert, pumice, dried herb, red cherry pie, ash.

Palate: Dry, with a soft, medium acid freshness, like a hot summer breeze, fine dusty medium tannins, oodles of alcohol and a plump body.

Flavors: complex yet somehow not over demanding. Soft red dried cherry. Red desert dust, cigar ash, malt, dries out into a brilliant mineral finish, long. Very very good (4 of 5).
