SC Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills 2018Regular price $37.00
The last of the line for this wine, I believe, from a vineyard in Echunga sitting up at 410 metres above the sea. Hand-picked, old French oak and 30% whole bunch.
Effortless wine, this one. It’s all blue fruit, spice, lavender and grilled meat. Such perfume! (but savoury too). Svelte and spicy, medium-bodied at most, juicy blue and black fruit, intensity of small berries with fine silty, almost Turkish coffee tannin, black olive and dried herb on a long finish of poise and exotic scents. It’s a beauty.
