2017 Yelland & Papps Second Take Roussanne

Barossa Valley, SA

A long-time favourite of ours! Cloudy, funky, uber-textural, full-throttle Barossa white wine!



About The Wine

Michael and Susan love Roussanne, as evidenced by their favourite '#GodSaveRoussanne' twitter hashtag

This wonderful example is just so much fun to drink. It's a bit out there and with its cloudy nature it can be a little confronting.

This is wild and raw unfined and unfiltered Roussanne in all its glory.

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

About Yelland and Papps

Yelland and Papps are poster-kids of the 'New Barossa'.

Owned and run by husband and wife team Michael and Susan Papps since 2005, their philosophy is about respecting what has made the Barossa great, whilst also experimenting with a new range of grape varieties and winemaking techniques.

Grenache and Shiraz are their primary focus in reds, while their textural Roussanne and Vermentino provide delicious alternatives to the typical regional white varieties.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked fruit, wild ferment in barrel with lees stirring and aged 9 months seasoned French oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Now if cloudy wine is not your thing, look away, but you'll miss out on a compelling drink. A mid-straw-yellow; tasting of lemon barley water, stone fruit and kernels, lime zest and daikon. The phenolics are well-handled with a lemon-saline acidity that activates the moreish gene." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)
