Yelland & Papps Pinot Blanc 2017

Love the “chalkboard” approach to the label, plenty to read and informative! Michael Papps and Susan Yelland keep it fun but with quality first and foremost.

Yelland & Papps, Pinot Blanc, Barossa Valley, 2017

Light, cooling, refreshing apple, cucumber, lolly banana and gin & tonic (juniper and quinine) florals. Pinot blanc can sometimes fall into sweaty tropicals but no such fear here. The palate is a delicious amalgam of soft fleshy yellow citrus with lively acidity and finishing with smoky complexity. A point of difference in the white wine landscape and succeeds in its goal of being a fun drink.

RRP: $25
