Availability: In stock

Abundant Tempranillo black fruits, plums, cocoa and wet earth overlaid with Touriga National’s pungent fruit, jasmine scented florals, nutmeg and cinnamon spice. The intense and tightly intertwined flavours are primarily of fresh blackberries with plum pudding and panforte. The complex spice profile includes hints of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Juicy, luscious and silky. It is a rich flavoursome, medium-full bodied wine. The palate is long and consistent with integrated tannins that provide for a balanced finish.

More information:

Stephen Pannell is one of the best and brightest of the new generation of Australian winemakers.  He spent a decade working as chief red wine maker at Hardys before striking out on his own in 2004. Steve has worked all over the world, including in Italy with Aldo Vajra in Barolo and in France for Domaine Dujac and Pousse d’Or. His father, Bill, started Moss Wood in Margaret River. His broad experience has helped shape his approach to winemaking and his wines are true expressions of the grapes and vineyards of McLaren Vale.

The Shiraz for his wines came from McLaren Flat and Seaview while the Grenache was sourced from Tintara, all areas he got to know well during the time he was based at the Hardy’s winery in the Vale. His Italian experience of Nebbiolo has been influential on his McLaren Vale version of this grape. In the cellar, Steve’s approach is disarmingly simple: natural yeasts allow time for a natural cold soak which aids in colour extraction. Fermentation takes place in open top fermenters, and the cap is hand plunged in order to get the tannin structure, almost Rhône-ish in style, that Steve is seeking. Length, texture and balance is cherished over massive flavour in Pannell’s wines.
