Yelland and Papps Second Take Grenache 2018

So pretty, you'd be forgiven for calling this as a Pinot, it's all manner of succulent fruit - red, to blue, and black. Specificity is not the issue here, IMO, it's about the range, depth - and harmony - of aromas that should have anyone reeled in.

Lithe, supple, as is the way with this variety and in this producer's hands. Silken tannin, barely there, followed up by a wash of acidity across the back palate. Fruit presence seems to darken a little with it, all adding up to a very impressive package. 95
