Yelland & Papps Second Take Mataro 2015

Yelland and Papps is a story about new beginnings, a story about a couple with a young family, forging their own path within a region as first generation winegrowers.

A new addition to the Second Take range, sees 100% whole bunch use and spends 22 days on skins.

Has a wild, natural vibe to it, whole bunch aromatics lending a spicy, sappy feel - certainly wouldn’t pick it as Mataro on aromatics. Some of that plummy, hoi sin starts to eke out….intriguing for sure.

Light, elegant, certainly demonstrative of a light hand on the tiller - spice in bags, very much a middle eastern soukh coming through.

Yet despite, or perhaps in spite of, that lightness and approachability, it still carries the unmistakable fingerprint of Mataro’s depth: blackness and spice. Bravo Michael and Susan, you’ve done it again. 92
