Yelland and Papps Second Take Roussanne 2017

Next level Roussanne. More than a Second Take, now firmly established in the Australian winemaking scene, an increasingly colourful landscape where the rule book isn’t even considered and the winemaker instead turns to a bag of tricks and techniques to extract a different language from varieties.

Has an aroma that reminds of mandarin segments, lemon juice with perhaps a peppery - almost like a bloody mary white pepper - aspect to it. 

There’s a sharpness, an acidity - almost like verjuice - that is an initial focal point to the wine, a precision beam. I actually wouldn’t mind a shot of this with a drop of Gin, a little cleanser to awake and enliven the senses.

Delivers to the very end. As always, an excellent addition to the winemaking scene. 92
