New Vintage Of SC Pannell Sauvignon Blanc

Stephen Pannell marked 10 years of the S.C. Pannell label in style, buying a vineyard he’s loved for years, acquiring a winery and cellar door in the heart of McLaren Vale. Growing up in the wine industry as a member of the family that founded Moss Wood in 1967, Pannell has garnered unparalleled experience over the years from many of Australia’s best wineries, including Wirra Wirra and Hardys, where he was Chief Red Winemaker from 1999 to 2003.

SC Pannell Sauvignon Blanc is consistently rated as one of Australia's finest examples of Sauvignon Blanc and the 2018 vintage is again in cracking form. The warm, dry vintage was perfect for this variety and has resulted in a wine with intense flavour concentration, complexity and a great natural acidity.

Stephen Pannell marked 10 years of the S.C. Pannell label in style, buying a vineyard he’s loved for years, acquiring a winery and cellar door in the heart of McLaren Vale and scooping the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy for his 2013 Adelaide Hills Syrah.

He grew up in the wine industry as a member of the family that founded Moss Wood in 1967 and has garnered unparalleled experience over the years from many of Australia’s best wineries, including Wirra Wirra and Hardys, where he was Chief Red Winemaker from 1999 to 2003.

He’s worked numerous vintages overseas with the likes of Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Burgundy, Château Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and G.D. Vajra in Barolo. Other highlights include landing the title of IWC International Red Winemaker of the Year in London, snaring the Jimmy Watson in 1996 and twice winning the Max Schubert Trophy at the Adelaide Wine Show, as well as being listed as one of the 50 most influential contributors to the world of wine by Decanter magazine.

Wines like his Tempranillo Touriga and Grenache Shiraz Touriga are as gastronomically astute as they are downright delicious. Grenache, Stephen’s ‘warm-climate Pinot’, goes from strength to strength, while the Nebbiolo has quickly become one of Australia's most sought-after examples.

The Adelaide Hills is recognised as one of Australia’s finest Sauvignon Blanc growing regions: the altitude, soils and weather patterns seem to draw the best from this variety and in 2018, I was lucky enough to take fruit from one of the finest Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in the region. The 2018 Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc is exceptional. The warm, dry vintage was perfect for this variety and has resulted in a wine with intense flavour concentration, complexity and a great natural acidity.

This is one of the finest Sauvignon Blancs we have made.
