About

Yelland and Papps is one of poster boys of the ‘New Barossa’. Owned and run by husband and wife team Michael and Susan Papps (ne Yelland) since 2005, Yelland and Papps’s philosophy is about respecting what has made the Barossa great over its long history, whilst also experimenting with a new range of grape varieties and winemaking techniques.

Their wines receive minimum intervention in the winery and are turning heads around the country with their excellent wines and innovative, convention-challenging approach.

As evidenced by their favourite ‘#GodSaveRoussanne’ twitter hashtag, Michael and Susan love this Rhone variety. So do we. This wonderful example is just so much fun to drink. It’s a bit out there and with its cloudy, ‘dirty’ nature it can be a little confronting.

So much texture and complexity. As delicious as it is different.

What It Tastes Like

“This is full cloud, in terms of turbidity, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Lemon, pie apple and ginger with a yeasty savoury edge. It’s medium bodied, spicy and texturally interesting with a pulpy, milky and lightly chalky texture. It has a gentle cider tang on the finish – kind of edgy – but I don’t mind that sort of thing when it sits comfortably inside the wine. Not for everyone, perhaps, but I like it.” - Gary Walsh
