SC Pannell

Steve’s interest in Grenache stretches back to the mid 90’s upon first arriving in McLaren Vale. A preference for making medium bodied wines lead him to Grenache and the love affair began. Given the warm, Mediterranean climate, Grenache grows as well in ‘the Vale’ as any of the more revered Grenache regions including France’s Rhone Valley, Priorat in Spain and Italy’s Sardinia. It’s medium bodied nature also makes it ideal for our food, life style and climate. It is unusual and rare to find 100% Grenache wines, as most of the time it is blended. Whilst Steve has been making a varietal Grenache from McLaren Vale for the past 20 years this is the first vintage from the higher altitude slopes of Clarendon. A dry-grown, bush vine vineyard that Steve has long wanted to work with. The highest Grenache vineyard in McLaren Vale

  • Varietal - Grenache Noir
  • Size - 750mL
  • Alcohol Volume - 14.20%
