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.
