Yelland & Papps Second Take Vermentino 2016

Vermentino with the dial turned to 12. Something out of the ordinary here and it ticks the boxes with ease.

Wild yeast fermented, unfiltered and unfined plus 279 days on skins no less. 800 bottles produced.

Underripe pineapple husk and white flowers are joined in the mouth by poached pear and stewed apple. Some nuttiness hides under the radar but does enough to poke its head through. There's good weight here, a far cry from the table wines usually delivered by this variety. That apple hangs long leaving a skinsy texture in its wake.

One for those who like different done well.

Drink now to three years.
