About

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

We like to treat our Shiraz a little differently to many others. In fact we do a whole bunch of stuff. 100% whole bunch.

That’s right. Hand-picked, whole bunches are fermented in old puncheons, spending about 14 days on skins before basket pressing to old oak puncheons for 10-11 months. We blend in small batches from other vineyards into the wine, bringing the whole bunch component down to around 60 – 70% before bottling the wine unfined and unfiltered.

Spicy with floral facets, you’ll find it medium-bodied with a juicy fruit profile, a touch of funk and a lot of deliciousness.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
ABV : 12.2%

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
