- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Yelland and Papps is one of poster boys of the 'New Barossa'. Owned and run by husband and wife team Michael and Susan Papps 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 innovative, convention-challenging approach. As evidenced by their favourite '#GodSaveRoussanne' twitter hashtag, Michael and Susan love this Rhone variety. 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
Rockmelon, apples and apple cider, sweet nougat and a chewy, yeasty character which is wild but awesome. Fat, rich and textural but with the tannin to keep it tight. Nice sweet, sour fruit. Cloudy as anything you're likely to see. Get into it, such great drinking here.
There is a lovely weight and texture to the 2016; there’s richness yet there’s clarity, detail and a zesty line that drives the wine across the palate. Again, the fruit flavours are ripe stone fruits, pear, and apple along with hints of white flowers, grilled nuts, marzipan, creme fraiche, exotic spice and a gentle note of oak way in the background. It’s savoury and stoney dry on the finish, a wine that shape-shifts the longer it sits in the glass; complex yet downright delicious to drink with a lingering finish redolent of citrus, nectarine and spice.

Yelland and Papps
Yelland and Papps is one of poster boys of the ‘New Barossa’. Owned and run by husband and wife team Michael and Susan Papps, their philosophy is about respecting what has made the Barossa great, whilst also experimenting with a new range of grape varieties and winemaking techniques.
The Barossa has a big reputation. Big in every sense of the word. Known for producing blockbusting examples of impenetrable old vine Shiraz and Grenache envied by much of the world, it is a region that should be celebrated as the region that first put Australian wine on the map. Now, with a new generation of winemakers reinventing the region, there’s more than just power in the Barossa’s bag of tricks. With a move toward picking earlier and pulling back on oak maturation, there’s a fresher, more subtle side to Barossa wine which offers plenty to the modern Australian wine lover.
