4.5 stars "Wine Advocate (92pts) said - 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 fi ne-grained tannin to evolve for 3-4 years. It will offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2022. Drink: 2012 - 2022 | Date Tasted: Dec 09" Best 2012-2017

94 points "The Struie hasn’t put a foot wrong in recent years and this is another beauty. It’s a smoky, meaty, jammy red, deep in both colour and flavour and long and succulent through the finish. I’ve loved the released of the past two years but if anything this is a touch better - Torbreck seems to have managed things brilliantly out of the tricky 2006. Ripping wine. Drink: 2008-2016. 94 points" Best 2008-2016
