The 2016 SC Pannell Adelaide Hills Syrah is perfumed, vibrant and complex with prominent blackforest fruits, tapenade, all spice and dark cocoa powder notes. A typically approachable rendition of Adelaide Hills Shiraz, this has a subtle power and intensity that slowly unfurls; revealing the density that carries the palate further. Incredibly balanced and poised, this is another exceptional release from SC Pannell.
"96 Points. Hand-picked, open-fermented with 30% whole bunches, 10 months in large French oak vats and puncheons. A very smart wine. The bouquet offers a combination of black fruits and stern spices, plus a waft of oak. The medium-bodied palate seamless picks up the theme in a star dust of spicy/peppery flavours and texture. It is at once powerful, yet calmly insistent. 14% alc. Drink By: 2036 Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
"95 Points. Deep, dark red/purple colour with a spicy, floral, gently bunchy aroma which is fresh and inviting. Some coal-dust and charcoaly notes. The wine is medium to full-bodied and packs a solid grip, all things in good balance, though. It has richness, intensity, and excellent length. A very smart red that's approachable young but will certainly age long-term."- Huon Hooke, The Real Review, March 2020.
