Yelland and Papps Second Take Shiraz 2017

The numbers: 73% whole bunch, 14d on skins; 100% French oak, 28% new.

Cracking aromatic mix of fruit, the bunch elements singing and adding their touch, hints of licorice root and all up it comes across as this cola-like presentation in glass. 

Deliciously medium bodied, has a wicked lick of acidity that flies through the wine. Tannin is fine, seemingly barely there, more presenting itself as a silken threaded chain of linked tannins extending the length further. Cracking. 93

Tasted on: Saturday 31st March, a Root day
