Highly scented with bright fragrance including fresh jasmine flowers and watermelon. The palate is fresh and juicy with flavours of raspberry, Aperol, blood orange and sherbert. Crisp, vibrant and totally slurpable. Ejoy on it's own or have with an array of seafood such as mussels, clams, bbq squid. Will also be a great accompaniment for light, spiced cuisine.

The S.C.Pannell label was established by Steve and wife Fiona in 2004. It could be said though, that Steve’s journey to winemaking really dates back to 1969. This is where, as a toddler he grew up on one of Australia’s most iconic boutique wineries, Moss Wood in Margaret River. He earned his stripes working with some Australia’s iconic wineries. These include Wirra Wirra, Hardy’s Tintara and BRL Hardy, where he was Chief Red Winemaker from 1999 to 2003. He also worked numerous overseas vintages. These were at such places as Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Burgundy, Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and G.D. Vajra in Barolo.
S.C.Pannell winery is realised to focus on Stephen’s passion for the McLaren Vale region and its ability to produce dry – grown and environmentally sustainable Shiraz and Grenache. Its quest is for great “wines that are grown, not made”. Wines that are delicious and taste of where they’re from. Wines that are a natural partner for the food and lifestyle of their home. Stephen Pannell is one of the most liked and respected winemakers in the business. He is also loved by a wine-drinking public looking for refreshing, aromatic white wines and reds that are approachable and moreish – in essence, wines that are serious while remaining irresistible to drink. The S. C. Pannell Arido Rose provides a vibrant aromatic and highly drinkable wine.
Career highlights include: International Red Winemaker of the year at the International Wine Challenge 1999, Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the year in 2015, and being named one of the 50 most influential contributors to the world of wine by Decanter Magazine. Steve has also received accolades from international wine writers such as “one of the greatest Australian winemakers ever to make wine in our age.
