About The Wine
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 receives the usual careful hand-made treatment, but 100% whole bunches adds loads of interest and a spicy, earthy complexity.
It's fresh, 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.
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.
