Yelland & Papps, Vin De Soif, Barossa Valley, 2017
Peniclly pine spice with bright cherry, raspberry and red currants, milk chocolate/liquorice “bullets,” boysenberry ice cream, lightly toasted fennel seed with a little cherry danish pasty. Plays daintier than its stated ABV, offering plenty of crunchy red fruit brightly cutting through a slightly sapid body. It’s tart, it’s fun, it’s got crystalline edges to meaty depth. Mature playtime and an easy glass to drain.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
