Yelland and Papps Second Take Shiraz 2019

Numbers: Whole bunch (100%), wild ferment; 100% old French for 11m.

Plum and Mulberry depths supported by the delicious whole bunches, that lend spice and savoury nuance to the aromatics. 

Subtlety of fruit carries long across the palate, prime Barossan fruit that is allowed free reign to express itself, unsullied by the shackles of new oak. 

Tannin is fine, a gentle and fulfilling coating across the breadth of palate - you'd suggest some extended maceration here. A very fine release. 92 

Tasted on: Friday 26th June 
Source: Sample
Price: $45
Alcohol: 13.4%
Closure: Screwcap
