Bright young thing. Raspberry cordial, blackcurrant, cut fennel, spice and earth, a rose petal perfume emerging. Medium bodied, good volume of flavour, though light in footprint, with a translucent quality, fine cocoa/graphite tannin, cool acidity, and a well-defined finish of excellent length. It has verity and interest. It will age surely, and well. You can enjoy it now, but its best years are ahead of it. Really like this wine. GARY WALSH
The eighth release of our S.C. Pannell Nebbiolo - a blend of five different clones from a certified-biodynamic Gumeracha vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. The grapes were hand-harvested in late March and traditionally vinified in small open-top fermenters. The wine was gently pressed off skins after 23 days, followed by the completion of malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. It was then transferred to old Hungarian oak puncheons and large vats for 14 months.
The wine is highly perfumed with notes of red cherry, rosewater, fennel bulb, cassis, chestnut purée and marjoram along with echoes of terracotta tiles and cedar. It’s medium-bodied and flavoursome. Unashamedly tannic with an almost unrivalled balance of acid and flavour, perfect weight and a tremendously long finish. - Stephen Pannell
