Yelland & Papps 2nd Take Roussanne 2015

Cloudy little beast, could fool you into thinking it's a cider, until you get the olfactory organ into it that is. Lemon drops, touch of butter menthol, florals, dribble of honey, a little thyme. Fragrant little cherub. 

Touch cidery on the palate, there's a sharpness, a little acidic punctuation somewhat unusually; carries some weight, length in spades. 

Lemon barley at its conclusion. Could drink this forever. Combines refreshment, interest, intrigue and just tastes damn good. 93
