Yapp Rouge 2018
Our 'house' red wine is made from pure Cabernet Sauvignon and, consequently, exhibits a mid-weight palate of cassis fruit over a background of ripe tannins. It is light enough to drink without food but makes a versatile partner to charcuterie, cheese, stews and grills, making it an ideal kitchen table red.
The Yapp Brothers own label red wine is a pure Cabernet Sauvignon cuvée produced by the reliable Ardèche co-operative. The distinctive label depicting our Citroën H-van was designed by the artist David Chandler.

Yapp Own Label Wines
Jason and Tom select the wines for the Yapp own labels annually.
"It is imperative that the wines bearing our name provide the same price to quality ratio as the rest of our portfolio. To a certain degree, it is as much of a challenge to find great wine for every day drinking, as it is to discover those world-renowned agencies."
Jason Yapp, Director of Wine.
