Quick Overview

 94 points - Steve Leszcynski - Qwine
"...... An absolute belter! Veneers of interest and personality continually peel back to reveal the next. There's more whole bunch than the previous release too - 73% this time in fact. Fourteen days on skins, wild yeast fermentation with no fining or filtration the standard procedure for these Second Take wines.

Wild and bunchy without surprise, it's elegantly smooth. Lace and knickers - sexy appeal kind of stuff. Mulberry and blue fruit moves to star anise, soy and pan juices. Another whiff and violet aromas make a play as do sauteed mushrooms. It feels a bit skinsy but tastes oh so good. An absolute delight and I wine which deserved every drop to be savoured."

Product Description

It’s Barossa Shiraz, but not as you know it. There’s 50% whole bunches in the ferment here, wild yeast of course but the addition of whole bunches gives the wine a sense of space and airiness; still of course with all those delicious Barossa Shiraz characters that you have grown to love. This baby sees 18 days on skins, having a rest for 8 months in French oak with 47% of the barrels brand new, before gently going into bottle, un-fined and un-filtered. It’s got elegance yet with a sense of latent power under the hood — think more like a classy Aston Martin DB5 than a souped up Holden Commodore and you get the picture. There is tannin and structure but it tugs gently on the palate. Don’t be afraid to chill this down for 30 minutes or so should your mood or situation suggest that is the correct course of action.

"I sip on this and hum along to the Incubus song 'Are you in?'. And if you're not on the Yelland & Papps train yet, perhaps you just need to be. Of the 2017 Second Take red releases, the Grenache was stunning, the Mataro incredibly expressive, but this Shiraz has scooped the pool. An absolute belter!
