Yelland & Papps Pinot Blanc 2016

From memory, a first for Y&P, a varietal Pinot Blanc. They've used the grape previously, as a blend with Gris (previous tastings). CORRECTION: this includes 19% Pinot Gris. 

Ooooh hello. Touches of marzipan/almond paste, bananay esters, under-ripe apple, fleshy tropical touches. 

Possesses a fullness, a fleshy, nashi pear like texture, positively rolls around the tongue, not quite chewy but a getting there semblance to it. Golden delicious apple veering towards a little tinned pineapple - more the syrup I'd suggest. 

Gorgeous Wine. 91 

Tasted on: Thursday 27th October, a Fruit to Root day
