Wines - 2013 BB Pinot Blanc (last vintage) - on special
Pale straw in hue with a hint of green the 2013 Yelland & Papps Pinot Gris/Pinot Blanc shows clean, bright aromas of vibrant citrus and stone-fruits - lemon, lime, grapefruit, juicy green apple and nectarine with lighter tropical tones apparent in the distance. Hints of lemon thyme, clotted cream, crushed quartz and nougat also appear with lighter wafts of honeysuckle, cut fennel and white flowers.
There is a snappy entry onto the palate, energetic and full of life, showing vibrant fruit flavours of crunchy green apple, grapefruit, lemon and nectarine. A pleasing flow onto the mid-palate shows great clarity and hints of nougat, scattered herbs, lemon zest and grapefruit pith. crushed stone and jasmine with lighter notes of apple peelings and sea spray. Bright, energetic acidity drives the wine along beautifully and the wine finishes with a blast of crisp apple, citrus and blossom.
