2016 Yelland & Papps Devote Rousanne

Have you ever watched a Quentin Tarantino movie?  They are so cool to watch.  Always interesting, always thought provoking and always leave you satisfied with the money you spent going to the movies to see it.

What I also love about his movies is the little sub-plots going on inside the main plot that makes sense when it comes to the end of the movie…if you get what I mean.

This Rousanne has all the sub-plots, intrigue and main players coming together perfectly. Here’s a preview:

You’ll see through all the intro stuff as soon as it’s poured.  That’s the only time everything seems…regular if you like.

The aromas are where the little side stories start.  There’s the fruit aromas that are doing their thing then the senses pan across to the hint of oak that is lifting the spice and nuttiness into the picture.

The palate is where the direction comes into it’s own.  The rich, ripe, textural prelude eases along while the spice, creaminess and slithered almonds come into the frame before that texture returns to bring it all together with lovely soft acid, hint of minerality, and length.  That’s where you realise, the script was so perfectly structured and all the players have been working together to bring the whole thing to an incredible, unsuspecting, satisfying finish.

Just like Quentin Tarantino, Michael and Susan have developed a cult following of wine lovers that are continually intrigued and impressed with their wines, and wait patiently for the next installment.
