2014 Yelland and Papps 'Second Take' Grenache

An interesting contrast to their Devote range Grenache, the Second Take is a fruity, lively, fun wine that is great for drinking young. Fermented naturally with 48% whole bunches before being aged in old and new oak for seven months, it was then bottled unfined and unfiltered. 

A sweet cherry/raspberry aroma jumps out of the glass and is followed by hints of chocolate and spice. In contrast to the sweet berry aromas the palate is refreshing and delicate, with a lively kick. This is a great bottle to buy and drink right away. An excellent wine marrying new and old wine making techniques to produce a faultless, fun, and interesting drop.
