Yelland & Papps Second Take Roussanne 2016

Basket pressed into 100% Old French Oak. Wild ferment and 9 1/2 months bâtonnage. Bottled unfiltered.

Yelland Papps, Second Take, Roussanne, Barossa Valley, 2016

Battonage lees stirring gives a cloudy appearance but not dull in any way. Nutty, frangipani, flour, peach fruit, apple cider and even a little latte coffee/milky chai aroma. Light stone fruit, little clips of roast almonds and that cloudy apple line swirling in a wonderful texture still with refreshing acidity. You may feel a like you’re turning into a hipster drinking a “natural” wine but don’t be afraid, there’s nothing too lo-fi about this well crafted wine.

RRP: $40
Alc: 12.3%
