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.
Fresh zesty, steely and minerally characters especially good for fresh shucked oysters or seafood on the beach.

Vintage 2016 Wrap Up
This year vintage started two days earlier than in 2015, but yet some blocks were two weeks behind last year and some were two weeks ahead.
As we always say, we take each vintage as it comes. They are all different and we have to be flexible with what we are dealt by Mother Nature.
