2016 Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz

I was reading the famous “I have a Dream” speech of Martin Luther King Jr recently and I must say, if you get a chance, read it (I have also seen excerpts of this in documentaries over the years).  It shows the determination of a person who is part of a minority, with the support of many, putting his thoughts, dreams and ambitions out there for the world to see and hear.  The speech starts on a high and gradually builds to a spine tingling ending.

Cue, this shiraz and it’s makers.

This wine started on a high for me and just kept getting better.  All red berries and a little charryness on the nose to start off with, greeny/stemmy characters next up but nicely complimented by the blue fruits that chimed in, BUT, the longer it sat in the glass, a lush array of darker fruits appeared that were lovely, soft and mouthfilling and seemed to go on and on like the last bit of that speech I mentioned earlier where the crowd of over 200,000 cheered so loudly and applauded for what seemed like forever.  It definitely hit the peak of a crescendo right then and there.

The Yelland & Papps husband and wife team are in the minority in the world of the Barossa Valley.  They have the support of many avid followers and are putting their thoughts, dreams and ambitions into the wines they make for the world to smell, taste and enjoy.  Get behind them!
