The Yelland and Papps story perhaps doesn’t fit in with the usual line spun by wineries in the Barossa - six generations of this, five generations of that. It is a story about new beginnings, a story about a young couple, with a young family, forging their own path within a wine region as first generation winegrowers. While not locals....there is a saying in the Barossa that you have to have a grand-parent “in the ground” before you are considered a local.....Susan Yelland and Michael Papps call the Barossa home and are as passionate as any sixth-generation Barossan about the region, its vines and its history and its characters.
Barrel fermented in seasoned French Oak for 3 weeks, left on yeast lees for 6 months.

Something a little different with this Rhone variety made from Greenock sourced fruit in the Barossa.
It's fermented in new and older oak and then left in oak for lees stirring for another six months. So it's got plenty of winemaking...
