Awards & Reviews
Barossa Cabernet doesn’t usually entice me into a deep dive but I’m ready to somersault into this Yelland & Papps release with pike. Damn delicious and easy to drink, it’s insanely smooth and velvet like.
Joyous blackberries, blueberry paste, dark chocolate, licorice, and star anise have me sitting bolt upright. I’m hooked from the outset. Cedar, bay leaf and dried thyme slowly unfurl gradually showing their hand. A wine that is more black fruit-driven if anything, it’s not a Cabernet with those avert capsicum and mint characters. Drying and dusty tannins present some chew with a scattering of powder the parting gift. Moreish. Smart stuff.

2021 Yelland & Papps Barossa Valley Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
‘Estate block Valley Floor Ober Langmeil (Dorrien). Hailing from our Estate block this vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon the vineyard has been removed after a well-earned rest and regenerate time has been replanted with Grenache Blanc and Roussanne.’
Cabernet is the second most-grown red grape in the Barossa Valley (though still far behind Shiraz). The Yelland & Papps Cabernet shows pronounced aromas of blackberry and tomato leaf over red cherry, clove, beetroot and cedar. It’s bright and tasty, well balanced, and goes especially well with foods like pizza or pasta.
