"Vibrant and fruit driven style presents lifted fruits of strawberries, raspberries, black cherries with red & black liquorice, cinnamon, all spice savoury notes. Juicy up front flavours with a firm finish provided by fine grained & dusty tannins. Long and consistent with integrated sandy, gritty Grenache tannins that just scream for food. An anywhere, anytime with anything red."

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.
