Yelland & Papps Second Take Roussanne 2014

Quite possibly one of the most colourful additions to the Australian winemaking scene of recent years, hotly following on the heels of both 2012 and 2013, comes this stellar release.

Pours a familiar cloudy, opaque, cidery form - indeed it even shows those apple and pear qualities. Spice, florals, textural nuances.

Looking back over those previous releases, you see familial traits, yet with the ebbs and flows of vintage, of the winemakers guiding hand, you see difference.

Celebrate the wine for what it is, damn drinkable without sacrificing complexity of interest, and not just a curio. 93
