2016 Yelland & Papps Second Take Grenache

Without a doubt the most obvious word to use when looking, smelling, tasting and drinking this wine is FRESH!!!

Everything about this wine just screams vibrancy, youthfulness and attractiveness.

Unmistakable red fruits.  Cranberries, raspberries and sweet/sour cherries.  You would not be criticised for thinking it was a pinot noir (I was tempted to preempt pinot noir with ‘Tassie’ but that would show my bias).

There is a lovely lightness when you taste it but still plenty of those red fruit flavours hitting the spot, not selling itself short of body thanks to a nice mid palate plumminess and some late spice adding a terrific third dimension.  Thankfully, oak doesn’t bother any of those elements.  I mean that in a good way because the delicious fruit, spice and pure freshness of this wine simply doesn’t need that distraction.  I really enjoyed this wine and so would you.
