Yelland and Papps Second Take Grenache 2019


In the words of George Michael, "Hey, you're just too funky for me, I gotta get inside of you,
And I'll show you heaven, if you let me..."
This is a slice of heaven worth investing in for those who adore Grenache. I could dive into this glass with pike. A Grenache cranking up the funk and delish dial all at once.

Off vines planted in 1953, clever winemaking saw 50% whole bunches and 50% whole berries with another portion seeing carbonic maceration before eleven months in French oak (14% new).

Delicate and lacey with pretty aromas of dried red flowers, juicy blue fruit and grape bubble gum. The more you swirl the more the sheets of pleasure continue to peel back with cola and soy. It's silky as super fine spices walk alongside soft textural feels. Lashings of earth, sweet brown spices and Chinese five spice muse on a long and drawn out finish. Super fine tacky tannins sit long and offer plenty to chew on. Yeah, let George show you heaven...

Drink to five years+
