Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2018

The wine spent 10 months in French oak, 15% of it new. Friendly to vegans, the wine is unfined and unfiltered, and only 12.8% ABV.

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

Spiced and leafy nose with chunks of raspberry and red plum over easy chocolate with an almost underlying citrus tang. A little toast and yeasty savouriness bring it back to ground. A smooth entry for the medium bodied palate. There’s tension and a primary, rudimentary sense of being. The tannins are fine and tightly knitted together while the delicious herbed, clovey raspberry fruit slides along easily.

RRP: $45
Alc: 12.8%
Rating: 18/20
