Abundant Tempranillo black fruits, plums, cocoa and wet earth overlaid with Touriga National’s pungent fruit mince, jasmine scented florals and nutmeg/cinnamon spices. It is a rich flavoursome, medium-full bodied wine. The palate is long and consistent with integrated tannins that provide for a balanced finish, and a synergy with food. 72% Tempranillo 28% Touriga (also contains Tinta Cão). Best enjoyed over the next five years whilst it’s fresh and alive.

These Pannell wines have something. Hard to define but you know it when you taste it. Cloves give woodsmoke the eye, plums wish they were cherries, redcurrant was earth in a former life. It’s a McLaren Vale red. Coco-pops for breakfast, port in a storm, shake this wine’s hand and it’s warm. McLaren Vale reds always seem old and thick and under-appreciated, more middle age than middle palate, even when they’re young. This wine is familiar like that, but something more too. It’s nuanced somehow. I sometimes wonder what the word creosote really means in relation to a glass of wine but that word started rolling around my head, in warm orange light, rightly or wrongly, as I sipped in the pre-cinema hour. What I finally noticed, as I took a larger swig on the way out the door, was that the tannin here, velvety as it is, is a bear hug. A gentle bear hug. Like one you might receive from Paddington.
