Yelland & Papps Second Take Grenache 2015

"wild ferment, 31% whole bunches and 21 days on skins before heading into 100% old, seasoned French oak barrels for eight months ageing. It then heads to bottle unfiltered and un-fined"

Grenache, Grenache, Grenache - let me count the ways I love you. When Grenache is made this well, it's a no brainer. Buy some. Now.

Sweet spice: cumin/coriander; segues to red fruit, a little dried herb. 

Supple, lithe, silken scarf of a wine; to call it Pinot-esque sells it short, gossamer threads of tannin provide a fine web structure the wine hangs itself off. 

Fresh and juicy, no simpleton, it has a delicious carry of flavour - spice a little tang under-ripe strawberry as a counterpart. Superb. 93
