Alcohol/vol 14.1%
Deep garnet in colour, this is a wine of many layers. It shows licorice, blackberry and plum, supported by notes of sandalwood and white pepper. A robust palate, full of chocolate and juicy Satsuma plum with a gravely tannin finish make it a great accompaniment to BBQ T-bone and seasoned wedges.

Full-bodied, lush and supple in the mouth, this blend of 40% Grenache, 38% Shiraz and 22% Mataro is the Australian version of a barbecue wine, bursting with rich, ripe fruit. Chocolate, mocha and plum shadings dominate, ending on a soft, warm note. Drink now-2020.

This medium to deeply-colored garnet/purple blend exudes aromas of warm blackberry, chocolate box, spice cake and licorice. The 2013 Samuel's Garden The Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro is dominated by Grenache in its medium to full-bodied style; it shows great great expression and is very spicy with some meatiness. The palate is velvety and possesses great length.
