Yelland & Papps, Second Take, Roussanne, Barossa Valley, 2017
Cloudy appearance, burnished gold. Intriguing aromas of red toffee apple, lime & mandarin citrus, salt & pepper spice, smoked almonds, marzipan and rich pot pourri. Be not fooled by the initial buttery, rich palate replete with mandarin citrus and ripping spice, there is an electric acidity that catches you off guard and strikes the teeth with precision. Echoes of smoke appear to enhance the long finish. A unique, and utterly delicious wine.
