Yalumba ‘The Strapper’ Barossa Valley Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro 2014

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 13-Nov-2017
Ruby-red colour with some depth, pale on the rim with garnet hues. The bouquet is soft and gently voluminous with good depth of aromatic dark raspberries and blackberries melded with a harmonious amalgam of savoury herbs, liquorice and spices, unfolding red floral perfumes. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and sweet flavours of dark raspberries with notes of blackberries along with suggestions liquorice and herbs and nuances of jam. The fruit forms an elegantly concentrated core. The fruit sweetness is underlined by fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. The palate is supple with good linearity, carrying to a lingering finish of raspberries, spices and herbs. This is a sweetly rich GSM with dark raspberry, blackberry and herb flavours on a supple, fine-textured palate with good drive. Match with antipasto, tapas, pasta and pizza over the next 4+ years. A blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro from the Barossa Valley, indigenous yeast fermented in tank and oak to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French and Hungarian oak of various sizes. 17.5+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $25.00
