Yalumba Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
The strapper is a reliable, behind the scenes member of a horseracing team in thoroughbred parlance, a face you're unlikely to see in the limelight of spring carnival. The Strapper GSM is not the showy type either, rather it's a favourite tipple of the winemakers themselves, when they're not imbibing in a chilled riesling or icy ale. Yalumba are very excited about this old world style of Barossa, a third of Shiraz is sandwiched between the understatedly fragrant perfume of Grenache and the earthy, rustic tannins of Mataro, a well bred, strapping and savoury wine.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
Few Australian winemakers have had as much experience with the GSM c├ępage as Yalumba. Originally fashioned into Ports and fortified, the exciting mix of grapes makes a multi dimensional style that's highly cherished by Barossa enthusiasts. Parcels of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz, are collated from good Barossa vineyards, separately picked and vinified in small batches, some in oak vats and the balance in fermenters. Components are aged in a mixture of large and small vats, puncheons and smaller barrels, French, American and Hungarian oak, allowing parcels to mellow and integrate, while forming texture and increasing complexity, without any overt influence from the barrels.
Deep dark garnet colour. A rich nose of brambleberries and pepper, hints of five spice complexity over a background of chocolate coffee oak. Layered and supple palate, well spiced red and black berry fruits are drizzled with chocolate. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro characters blend harmoniously, the Strapper finishes long and lingering on a note of rustic but velvet textured tannins.
