Toning things down from the 2016 with (only) 67% whole bunch and only 17% new French oak. Still unfiltered and unfined.
Yelland & Papps, Second Take, Mataro, Barossa Valley, 2017
Sandy earth, moist beetroot & choc cake, red apple, sour cherry, plum and spiced tobacco. Rips through with energy. This is textural. Visceral. A balanced 2 halves, starting out with a fruit blend of blue plum, sour cherry and unfiltered to finish bright and clean.The fruit feels siphoned within the tunnel of delicate, gossamer tannin to evoke a lip-smacking response with lingering herby, varietal whispers. Highly drinkable.
