Yelland and Papps Second Take Vermentino 2018

A whopping 310 days on skins, before the Papps kids earned their supper by pressing it off. 

Has that skinsy, herbal tea/Jasmine tea vibe going on, a suggestion of tart citrus ripples across the nose. Beautifully balanced, aspects of baking spice sit meshed into the wine's core, it's textural as it conveys presence across the palate, a fine acidic line the nervous system about which the wine brims.  

Multi-faceted, offering something at each and every turn. You feel that Michael and Susan have this finely tuned now, the seventh vintage for the Second Take range, fifth for this Vermentino, and it's a slick operation. 93
