Yalumba's The Strapper 2015 is a juicy and robust red wine blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) grapes. Well-priced below $20. The Grenache shines in this wine with its ripe and juicy raspberry flavours, dark plums, dark chocolate and nutty finish.

Gsm food pairings: charcuterie, BBQ T-bone steak, seasoned wedges, pasta with bacon and truffle.

Reviews and Ratings

Yalumba's The Strapper 2015 is a juicy and robust red wine blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) grapes. Well-priced below $20. Varietals are picked separately for this wine and are vinified separately. The wine juice is aged in large oak vats, smaller oak vats, puncheons and smaller oak barrels giving the wine structure and more complexity. On the nose the wine is perfumed with crushed red raspberry, red plum, earthy florals. Sensuous on the palate with ripe red fruits, cocoa flavours and nutty notes from oak ageing. Lovely now. Pair with grilled ribs and chicken. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
