Fresh-fruit aromas of raspberry and bright red cherries, with rhubarb, rose petals and musk lollies leading on to a plush and juicy palate. Youthful, medium-bodied and layered, with a long, salivating finish bolstered by sandy tannins.

The S.C.Pannell label was established by Steve and wife Fiona in 2004, but Steve’s journey to winemaking really dates back to 1969, where as a toddler he grew up on one of Australia’s most iconic boutique wineries, Moss Wood in Margaret River. S.C.Pannell winery was 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. 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.
