S C Pannell Tempranillo Touriga 2017

WITH MCLAREN VALE TEMPRANILLO BLENDED WITH BAROSSA VALLEY TOURIGA, SC PANNELL HAS MADE A PORTUGESE-STYLED WINE THAT BRINGS CHOCOLATE, PLUM AND SWEET SPICES, DELICIOUS! 

“Known as ‘the red one’ this may well be the wine for our times. Cherry Cola, Bright red fruit, dried herbs and spice. Medium bodied with a crackle and pop to the supple tannins, it is juicy but not forward with a driving finish. Goes well with stuffed red capsicum with rice and paprika. Or Chorizo!" - SC Pannell

 

"These Pannell wines have something. Hard to define but you know it when you taste it. Cloves give woodsmoke the eye, plums wish they were cherries, redcurrant was earth in a former life. It’s a McLaren Vale red. Coco-pops for breakfast, port in a storm, shake this wine’s hand and it’s warm. McLaren Vale reds always seem old and thick and under-appreciated, more middle age than middle palate, even when they’re young. This wine is familiar like that, but something more too. It’s nuanced somehow. I sometimes wonder what the word creosote really means in relation to a glass of wine but that word started rolling around my head, in warm orange light, rightly or wrongly, as I sipped in the pre-cinema hour. What I finally noticed, as I took a larger swig on the way out the door, was that the tannin here, velvety as it is, is a bear hug. A gentle bear hug. Like one you might receive from Paddington." Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front
