Another great review in ‘The Adelaide Review’, in August 2013. Article by Charles Gent.
John Struik really likes his Goat Track Shiraz, and so do a lot of other people. But the grape he really loves is Cabernet Sauvignon.

The judges of The Adelaide Review Hot 100 South Australian Wines elevated the 2010 version to their Top 10, describing it as “full bodied and fruit forward with pleasing black fruit surrounding a leafy core”. Struik, a big, bluff bloke, is more prosaic: he calls it a “standup wine”.
