Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2015

50% whole bunch, 100% awesome.

There's so much going on here and the interest is in the detail: 18 days on skins, 100% French oak of which 47% was new, unfined and unfiltered but damn fine indeed.

Head-spinning aromas of red and purple flowers, potpourri, grape hubba bubba, Morello cherry, cured meat and spices. It possesses a density but still very much sits in the medium body realm. The depth delivers pan juices, juicy plums and dark fruits. Super soft and length for days.

High fives all round - a super expression of Barossa Shiraz.

Ready to drink now but will cellar for eight to ten years.

Very good+
