19+/20 Points - Matthew Jukes "2022 was a wonderful vintage for The Struie. I started to write notes about how this was a pretty boy, a Jude Law of a wine, but as the flavour grew in the glass the dimensions expanded and firmed up on the finish, and entirely different ideas formed in my wine brain. To fully understand this following fanciful description, we must start with this wine’s philosophy – literally its roots. The notion of blending Eden Valley fruit, taken from vineyards situated at 400-500m, with warmer Barossa Valley sites at 200-300m is not new. Many try to craft wines that marry freshness and spice with density and grandeur and fail to get the balance right. I do not want an ugly weld joining these two vehicles. I would rather experience the vinous equivalent of a top-of-the-range Bentley with its ostentatious frippery removed, roll bars fitted, and four-point racing harnesses and bucket seats in place of the kid leather chaises longues. Get rid of the B&O stereo – I want to hear the engine. Ditch the fridge and champagne glasses in the boot and pursue this weight-loss programme with the help of an adrenalin-fuelled mechanic until you have a Titanic engine supported by a lightweight but extraordinarily robust chassis. Remove any nomenclature on the boot and rename this vehicle The Struie. It is a perfectly dimensioned weapon – purring, ready to tear away from the blocks with the perfect balance of power and poise. Welcome to 2022 The Struie. The tech spec is above, and in place of a 0-60mph time, you have a more meaningful score to alert you to just how much I love this wine." Drink 2027-2040
