Yelland & Papps Barossa Valley

Wines - 2009 YP Vin De Soif


The Wine

Concentrated bright confectionary and red fruit characters, of toffee and raspberry, are the enticing first up aromas which lead into the lifted blackberry Shiraz notes. The palate is rich and smooth, with depth, balance and a deliciousness, capturing red and dark berry fruits. The fruit weight is supported by subtle spicy oak and a juicy finish.

Enjoy now or cellar for 5-8 years.

The Winemaking

Both parcels were fermented on skins in open fermenters for 7 days and then gently basket pressed.

These small parcels of wine were then transferred to new and old French and American oak for 15 months for maturing. A selection of both these wines was then blended together and bottled unfiltered.
