SC Pannell Syrah 2016 - Adelaide Hills
Bottle size: 750ml
This cool climate Syrah was sourced from Echunga, 410 metres above sea level in the Southern Adelaide Hills. The fruit is grown on well-drained, granitic soil, my preference for Syrah. I call this wine Syrah instead of the traditional Shiraz to stop confusion and pay homage to the style of wine it makes in the Northern Rhone Valley of France where it originates from.
I’ve been champing at the bit to release this wine and am very excited about its quality. I think its one of the best wines we have released under our label to date. I love making and drinking cool climate Syrah, and believe it has an enormous future in the Adelaide Hills. This Syrah isjuicy, elegant and refined but importantly, still has an underlying sense of power and depth offlavour, and beautiful tannins.
Try with Moroccan lamb or braised beef.
