About the Wine
This Shiraz from Yelland & Papps is a collection of parcels from multiple sub-regions of the Barossa. It features fruit from their estate vineyard in addition to fruits from Sonntag, Materne and Modra.
It's a wine full of fragrance and a lovely texture from the whole bunches used. Packed full of plummy fruits mixed in with warming spice, it's a bit more of a restrained style of Shiraz than you might expect from the region.
A straight-up winner, here.
About Yelland & Papps
Yelland and Papps are not your average Barossa producer.
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.
These are very well made, interesting wines that show Barossa warmth and richness with a little bit of an edge.
