The Strapper in thoroughbred parlance is the reliable and trustworthy member of the team - not generally in the limelight. The Strapper, Barossa Valley GSM is not the showy type, rather the wine that the winemakers drink, when they're not having a Riesling or an ale. Authentic Barossa Shiraz is sandwiched between the understated fragrant perfume of Grenache and the earthy, rustic tannins of Mataro - a well bred, strapping and savoury wine.
"Rich, ripe and velvety, this is dense without being heavy-handed, with cherry, blackberry, pomegranate and spice flavors that dance through the vigorous finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases imported. "
"Vivid crimson-purple; the expressive bouquet of red fruits is challenged by the complex array of flavours on the medium-bodied palate, ranging through red, purple and black, and a veneer of mocha/vanilla oak."
