As Yelland and Papps owners Michael and Susan Papps describe this wine themselves, "It’s Barossa Shiraz, but not as you know it." The Y&P 'Second Take' range is all about innovation - both through exploring new varieties and re-inventing the classics. This is (obviously) the latter, and it's a really exciting, edgy version of Barossa Shiraz. It comes from 85-year-old vines and receives the usual careful hand-made treatment, with 50% whole bunches adding loads of interest and spicy, earthy complexity. Michael reckons you could throw it in the fridge for half an hour - unusual for Shiraz - and I reckon he's right! It's fresh, it's fruit-forward, it's funky and just good fun. Tiny volumes made, and if you want to see a different side of Barossa Shiraz then this is absolutely worth a try.

What it Tastes Like

"Sappy mezcal aromatics, grilled meat with black pepper, cherries and red fruits, sweet cinnamon laced oak. Medium bodied, vibrant and spicy, with some floral mouth-perfume, light rasp of tannin, almost a pretty expression of Barossa Shiraz here, with a crisp finish of excellent length. Complex, but easy to drink." - Gary Walsh
