Yelland & Papps Devote Shiraz Roussanne 2011

"Altogether all too drinkable" quipped my wife. Not sure I need say more than that.

Elegant, perfumed, with accented/ higher notes on the berry fruit spectrum. The Roussanne - a white variety and constituting 15% of the wine - seems to have provided a leg up to the wine. It's very fluid, an easy wine to drink and like, not simple though.

Black fruited with with a spicy/ black pepper line through it, carries a dark undercurrent. Fresh, delicious acid freshness on the back palate, excellent length. 93 - Very Good  

Tasted on: Wednesday 27th February, a Fruit Day
