Yelland and Papps Second Take Grenache 2017


Wicked Grenache! This is an absolute treasure - not a drop was left. I couldn't help but keep going back to it. Boom!


Whole bunch is the go here - 64% no less. Wild fermented, 20 days on skins, eight months in old oak but for 9% new French, unfined and unfiltered.

Violets and blue fruits plus some redskin and boiled lolly aromas. Smooth and swarve, it oozes charisma. Flecks of savoury goodness, some earthiness and fine spices cuddle the raspberry and red fruit. Gorgeously medium bodied, it moves through the mouth with a street-smart swagger. Beautifully balanced, it lingers and pulls you closer. Rush to the front of the queue for this. Please do.

Drink now to five years.
