Black fruits, cherry, fruit bread & red liquorice, overlaid with Touriga Nacional’s pungent fruit, jasmine scented floral and nutmeg/cinnamon spices. The intense and tightly intertwined flavours of this rich and flavoursome wine are primarily of fresh blackberries and panforte, with a complex spice profile including clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Layered with granular tannins leading to a balanced finish. At home with a range of slow cooked meat dishes lashed in rich sauces.

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.
