*2 bottles each (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Cabernet/Malbec)

Nebbiolo is already an SC Pannell classic, but the 2016 vintage is the easily the best we’ve seen. Bright, spicy and aromatic but as usual packed full of rich flavour and built to last with tannin management approaching the real Langhe hills deal. Complimenti!

The 2017 Barbera is also laden lush fruits and spice but feels a little more compact and svelte in comparison, due largely to Barbera’s dark fruit, keen acid but lower tannin structure.

The third leg of the trifecta is the bangingly good 2017 Cabernet Malbec. Okay, Cabernet and Malbec aren’t ’Alternative’ but geez the wine is good. A richly flavoured red full of cassis, chocolates, earth and spice. It has a stylistic foot in the camp of the great Cab blends of the 1950's alongside energy and polish of the modern winemaking regime. A classic in the making.

The two former wines are from an immaculate Adelaide Hills vineyard (Gumeracha) and reveals Stephen’s love affair with Piemonte. The Cabernet/Malbec is from the McLaren Vale and when the vineyard was offered, it inspired Stephen pay homage to local icon Wendouree who immortalised this blend.
