Yelland & Papps Second Take Grenache 2016

If you need clarification for why I love Grenache so much, track this down. What a cracker!

Michael Papps has weaved his magic here. 61% whole bunch, wild fermented, 17 days on skins, 26% new oak, unfined and unfiltered and all that jazz.

Some sweet fruit love, it's plush sending you to your knees. Pretty and vibrant, there's an electrifying personality here. Nimble on its feet, bright red fruits run riot. The bunches play the savoury hand without overstaying their welcome. Fine spice rides it home with a funky textured beat.

Grenache with personality and funk - more please!

Drink now to five years.
