Yelland & Papps Second Take Mataro 2017


Perfectly pitched, damn this is a super expressive Mataro. I doubt you'll find any Mataro as perfumed and energetic as this. Straight to the top of the dais for this sexy number.

Fruit expression all the way here. 67% whole bunch fermented, 14 days on skins, in barrel for 7 months (17% new French), unfined and unfiltered.

Sumptuously medium bodied, it's a delectable slurp. Think dark cherries and dark chocolate, Asian spices and pan juices. More time reveals hoisin and aniseed with some blue fruit and cedar tucked in neatly behind. I keep going back to be seduced by violet-like aromas. Weighing in at 13.5%, it's a wine you could easily sip away at all night - and I did, for a couple of nights in fact. Stunning! Scramble for it.

Drink now to five years.
