Yelland & Papps Second Take Roussanne 2013

The 2012 was quite possibly one of the best new releases from last year. The eagerly anticipated follow-up...

Greeted with the familiar cidery notes, you're also presented with apple, citrus, honeysuckle, frangipani and a little white spice/ ground ginger. 

Complexity is it's middle name, further elements of citrus with honeyed tinges. A slightly different bent this time around: nuts, citrus peel. A maelstrom of flavours I wrote in the notes I took when tasting, yet it handles itself well and drinks beautifully over two - even a third - day. Another spectacular release. 92

Tasted on: Monday 17th March, a Fruit transitioning to Root Day
