Yelland & Papps Devote Roussanne 2014

Fresh! Whack - sensory assault: florals, honey, golden delicious and nashi pear in the mix too.

Alcohol down on the 2013: mid-11 here compared to 13% on the previous year. Apparently both picked at the same baumé, around high 11s.

Mealy, honeyed, creamy porridge with honeyed notes. Has a skinsy feel - more apparent as it opens up; stonefruit, textural rub, lower alcohol and a moderate balance of acid. Better for it I think. 92

Tasted on: Monday 27th April, a Leaf day
Source: Sample
Price: $35
Alcohol: 11.7% (11.5% on the website)
Closure: Screwcap
