2015 Yelland and Papps Second Take Vermentino

Vermentino is becoming a bit popular these days as people explore different varieties.  I can only guess this has something to do with our multicultural society and the availability of some excellent food styles.  I think this is an excellent trend.

But when someone goes outside the square, a bit left of centre, does ‘different’ instead of ‘normal’, you have to celebrate and appreciate their resolve.

I’ve had a bit of a head cold lately which has killed my sense of smell, but thankfully (and surprisingly) not my taste buds!

It’s a little cloudy, which is to be expected, but it is not a deterrent by any means.  It tells me it’s filled with mystique.  Textural, slippery, packed full of flavour and a creamery drink that seems to have so much confidence to it.  It keeps you sipping to find out what flavour you’re going to discover next!

A very interesting wine…in a really good way.  I reckon it is bound to bring in those that doubt the ‘skin contact’ genre of wines.
