Yelland & Papps, Second Take, Vermentino, Barossa Valley, 2018

Carries some residual sediment like a good ale. Medium gold in the glass. Aromatic and potent. Sharp apricot stone fruit, preserved lemon and ginger take care of fruit components while lanolin, sesame oil, matcha green tea and Brazil nut make for a complex set of aromas. Textural and tangy on-set with orange citrus moving through to creamy apricot halves and nutty overtones. Taut and tightly wound with a slightly grainy complexity and a briny finish. Unique.

RRP: $45
Alc: 11.2%
Rating:  17.5/20
