Quick Overview

Wine Companion tasting note.


By: 2029 Price: $40.00 Date Tasted: 31 Mar 2017 Alcohol: 13.8%



Hand-picked, 73% whole bunches, 17 days on skins, matured for 9 months in French oak (23% new), like all the Yelland and Papps red wines, not filtered or fined. Light, faintly turbid red; the savoury/earthy nature of mataro is resistant to change, but it gains a narrow margin here.

Product Description

Yowsers! Hold your horses; whats that? A 100% whole bunch Mataro from the Barossa. Yes dear wine lover, that is correct so buckle up and prepare yourself for a delicious ride on one of our favourite grape varieties. Mataro just rocks. It’s savoury, spicy and just dead sexy.


Our Second Take Mataro, as mentioned previously is 100% whole bunch, aged for 8 months in 100% old, seasoned French oak barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 2015 vintage in the Barossa was a good’un, stretching out nicely, giving us grapes with great flavour and balance. That certainly makes out job easier in the winery as we can guide the wine to bottle with minimal intervention and I’m sure you’ll agree, the resulting wine is pretty hard to put down.


Medium cherry-red in the glass with fruit aromas of dark plum, macerated summer berry fruits, blueberry and some mulberry high-tones providing aromatic lift. Hints of exotic spice, roasting meats, cherry pie, licorice, jasmine and gentle, nutty oak further in the distance. It sits at the lighter end of medium-bodied.

The whole bunch component allows plenty of light to shine of the ripe, pure fruit on the palate. Again lovely, juicy plum, blueberry and mulberry fruits lie at the wines core. There are hints of abundant exotic spice, hoi sin, red licorice, Peking duck, Barossa earth, purple flowers and light nutty French Oak notes. It peaks the drinkability meter; pure yet savoury with a spicy swing to its tail as it exits the palate and while it is lovely by itself, it would be the bomb with some BBQ’d meats or spicy stir fry action.

    Talk about pushing boundaries - 73% whole bunches for Mataro. I'm confident there is nothing else in the market like it.

    The wine spent 17 days on skins with 23% new oak. 1500 bottles produced.

    An interesting start. Cough syrup lobs up but blows off in time. Give it a good decant to see best results. On the second day of tasting it found its mojo, and the third it was absolutely humming.  The whole bunches and stems really come through here adding delicious savoury appeal. Wood spices, soy, pan juices, mulberry fruit, dark plums, dark berries and a canned plum lift. There's a pretty factor too from purple florals yet there's a serious game face here too.

    Gee this grew on me - here lies the benefit of tasting wines over a couple of days. Treat it right and it will pay dividends. Get in the queue.
    Drink now to six years.

  • Tony Peters - Words from a Wine Glass
    Two words sum up this wine and the Yelland Papps team. Quiet achiever/s.

    I have to admit to wondering what this wine was doing to start off with. It offered near nothing when it was opened and poured. Shy and unresponsive to say the least and I’d go as far to say, it lacked personality.  However. I left it alone for a while. Well, to be honest I put it aside and went looking for something else to open.

    Given the chance, it displayed plenty of berries, some cherries and a ‘come a little bit closer’ nose that drags you in but tasting it provides even more interest. Hello to those berries then surround it with plums, savoury/sticky oak, dry earthiness and it becomes such a friendly thing that, in my opinion, will end up being the poor cousin in this range of wines. It doesn’t deserve to be.
    The only points I’m giving to this wine is both of my index fingers pointing to the website below. Hit the link my friends.
