Yalumba The Strapper 2013
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa|
Wine EnthusiastFull-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.
Wine AdvocateThis 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.
Wine SpectatorShows an appealing vibrancy to the plum and pomegranate flavors, with white pepper, fresh rose petal and black tea accents on a velvety frame. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2028. 2,000 cases imported.
