Yelland & Papps Devote Roussanne 2012

This wine had me thinking of meadows, of sunlit kissed fields. It smells golden, of early morning light, florals. Walking through a field, flowers gently swaying in a breeze, or at the touch of a hand. 

Up front, it's gently honeyed, some background tropical notes. Key here is delicacy, not overt-smack-you-in-the-face aromatics.

Flaked almond, a slight creamy touch, a suggestion of spice. Drying, a gentle phenolic tug. Finishes well, combination of florals and fruit characteristics. A gentle end to a stroll through a meadow. 93 - Very Good
