Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"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.

This is a highly aromatic GSM, exhibiting aromas of raspberries, menthol, smoky BBQ notes and hints of strawberry leaf. The palate is just as alluring with red berry flavours, cinnamon spice, a juicy mid palate and lovely ferrous like tannins."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"A lovely GSM blend, the beautifully perfumed bouquet shows dark plum, raspberry, vanilla and floral aromas with a touch of pepper spice. The palate is juicy and silky, and offers bright fruit flavours together with rounded mouthfeel, backed by polished tannins. Very smooth and friendly with loads of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2020."
4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"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. "
