SC Pannell Koomilya Shiraz - McLaren Vale
Bottle size: 750ml
Out of Stock
This Shiraz is blended from three of the Koomilya property's Shiraz blocks. Varying vine age, clone and cuttings all contribute to a wine of depth, unique character and complexity. This is an exceptional expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz, with meaty/charcuterie notes backing the generous red fruit, Christmas cake spice with hints of turkish delight. Gentle but concentrated, medium plus palate weight and rich with substance. This is a wine with poise, balance and a silky, elegant texture.
First planted in the late 1800s by the Hardy family, the vines in the Koomilya vineyard are now 70 years old. It is in the Blewitt Springs sub-region, with more sand in the soil than other McLaren Vale sites.
The Shiraz fruit had a long maceration period and underwent open top fermentation. It was then transferred to a four year old 2,700 litre French oak vat and a three year old French puncheon to age for 16 months with no racking.
Perfect with Scotch fillet steak sandwich with dill gherkins and duck fat frites.
S.C.Pannell the 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 the Margaret River.
The 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.
In 2014 a new home was established at 60 Olivers Rd McLaren Vale, including cellar door, restaurant, and wedding venue.
Steve's holistic philosophy to winemaking starts with our climate, empahasises the importance on the vineyard, as well as wine's relation to food we love to grow, cook, and eat.
