2017 Yelland & Papps Pinot Blanc

I’m going to start off by saying, I think it is great that Michael and Susan keep the label going.  I reckon it is excellent.

Now, the wine.  It was a pretty warm day in Hobart so it called for a white wine.  This proved to be a very popular choice.  A mate called in and the immediate response was, “Great label.  I love this wine already”.

I can understand if you are a bit puzzled by my next comment.  This has some nice palate weight.  I know, I know, I can be honest in saying I didn’t expect it.  I expected it to be an upfront, fruity, easy going, delicious number but there was more on offer.  G’day golden delicious apples, with a hand shake of lemons and and hint of other tropical fruits that make this wine so very appealing.  Even the finish gave more than you would normally expect from a wine at this price.

Amidst all the relaxed atmosphere and conversation, it didn’t last long and the bottle was empty.  That’s the personality this wine brings to the group.
