Yelland & Papps Devote Roussanne 2012
This is the business.
What is so appealing about this wine is the texture. Sure, it is barrel fermented, but you are not bashed over the head with a lump of timber. Some nougat, lemony and nutty aromas, stonefruit type flavours fill out the palate beautifully. The fruit is laid on thick and the use of new and old French oak has imparted a delicate softness, and damn, it is so easy to drink. A finish that appears to linger forever, your glass will be empty in no time.
Only 1600 bottles produced, this is an impressive wine.
