2012 Yelland & Papps Delight Vermentino
Posted on August 23, 2012 by Jeremy Pringle
Clean and crisp Australian Vermentino, made for drinking not thinking. Like the new labels too; they suit the wine.
Citrus blossom, zesty lemon and ozone-like aromatics. A good balance between textural nuance and litheness. It flows well and finishes dry with a hint of spice and just a bit of pithy grip. There’s a pleasant degree of palate weight whilst never really straying from its light bodied framework. A suggestion of slate on the finish. Easy to recommend and will go down a treat this summer. Good

Yelland & Papps Delight Vermentino 2012
A wine quite pale in appearance, although it is quite aromatic with a good whiff of fresh green apple the highlight for me. Much lighter in style and this took me by surprise, yet it is still clean and fresh. There is a little zip towards the end to give you something to think about.
Seafood screams out for this drop, and although it is a good wine, I feel it is not value for the $20 suggested. Had there been a little more interest on the palate I wouldn't question it.

Yelland & Papps Delight Vermentino 2012
A pleasant packaging refresh since I had a look at the 2011 release of the same. A pleasing tactile feel to the label too. You'll have to avail of one to get a feel for yourself.
Lemon, citrus blossom evade out of the glass - bringing you in. The palate shows good mineral character. It's zesty, has a bit of verve, drive and swagger to it whilst retaining a lightness.
Moreish, fresh. Finishes good, it hangs around - lingers with a little more of the minerally resolve that makes this example more than just a wash of flavour. 89 - Good

Yelland and Papps 2012 ‘Delight’ New Releases
by The Wine Punter on September 1, 2012
I like the new labels on Yelland and Papps‘ current releases. They’re bold and tell a great story and I’m a sucker for a story. It’s not all detail and obscure tasting notes but rather a free flowing list of suggestions of how this wine might best be enjoyed.
It’s fun, edgy and an effective means of sharing the style of wine and the context in which it was intended to be drunk. These labels focus on the experience of drinking instead of what it should taste like. It works for me.
I particularly like the comments on the rosé, ‘light in body, large on enjoyment, nudey runs, vibrant…’ My kinda wine.
Yelland and Papps Vermentino 2012
With a savoury, green vegetable aromas it’s clear this is no fruit floozy. It’s dry with a cleansing texture and just a subtle hint of stewed apple with lemon zest. It’s got a faint briny cmponent which complements salty food nicely.
White anchovies were a deadly match with this wine. It’s ideal for seafood and was a hit for everyone at the table, most of whom were vermentino virgins.

A lovely vermentino that has plenty of crisp composure and bright, greasy, lemony fragrance, really fresh and briny stuff. The palate's crisp and juicy, with plenty of lemon flavour and some lemon barley; grassy, waxy and good tang through the finish.
