Made exclusively for United Cellars by the supremely talented Stephen Pannell. 55% Shiraz, 23% Tinta Cao, 22% Touriga Nacional This is a restrained and savoury red wine, driven by its juicy rich blue and purple fruit but framed assertively by the strong, spicy grape tannins of the Portuguese varieties. Wafts of violets, blood plum and mulberry rise from the glass along with a sanguine charcuterie character. In the mouth the texture is plush and svelte with plenty of fruit, yet structurally it is tight and long, with ample, earthy, persistent and flavoursome tannins.

Winemaker Steve Pannell is making quite a name for himself with 'Alternate Varietals', finding great success with grapes well-suited to hot climates (which the McLaren Vale often falls into!). This wine uses Portuguese native varieties usually known for the part they play in Port, here made into a spicy, round and herbal dry red, with a juicy round body and rustic, chewy tannins, perfectly matched to a cold night by the fire. 1900 bottles made.
