Yelland & Papps Roussanne 2013
Barrel fermented in new and old French oak, this is then left on lees for six months. Only 800 bottles of this Roussanne were produced.
Packed with goodness and layered with flavour, think a splash of vanilla, preserved lemon, a touch of mandarin peel, florals and cashews.
The fruit is thick and moreish and some peachy flavours step up. A sprinkle of spice adds further appeal. Acid is balanced framing the fruit well.
Have in the medium term with any white meat or creamy pasta.
Very good. Actually, bloody good!
