2013 Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz

imageSensibly proportioned yet easily identifiable as Barossa Valley Shiraz. Fifteen percent whole bunch, a mix of French and American oak for ten and a half months with about half of that French oak being new. Unfined, unfiltered.

Red and black brambly fruits, satsuma plums, chocolate and vanilla, cloves. Generously fruited with nutty savoury counterpoints. A touch of aniseed. Vitality and plenty of flavour without being a blockbuster. Well managed tannin. Choice. 92
