Koomilya McLaren Vale Shiraz 2014

Five years on and everything remains in its right place. Rich and complex with lovely structure line and length. Many years left in it, but probably in peak Sri king window now. Great stuff. — 2 months ago

McLaren Vale Grenache 2014

See previous note from January 2022. Has lost its primary red fruited characters of raspberry and strawberry from its youth. More musky and earthy these days. From 72 year old Grenache vines in the Old McDonald vineyard in McLaren Vale. Steve Pannells winemaking touch still evident with excellent material - a great combination. — a year ago

Cavit SC Trento (Cantina Viticoltori Soc. Coop. [C.V. S.C.])


Bought to make Negronis, and great on its own. Lots of acidity, paired well with two white pizzas — 3 years ago

McLaren Vale Tempranillo Touriga 2013

See previous notes on March 2020 and October 2020. This tasting was even better than those two tastings. At 10 years it is peaking. Sweet and savoury ripe plum and black cherry. So mellow, earthy and delicious. A brilliant wine from a brilliant winemaker. He certainly is the master of alternative varieties in this country - Steve Pannell. A lot like cool climate Shiraz and many would pick it as that in a blind tasting. A great match with Chicken Legs. — 5 months ago

Langhorne Creek Montepulciano 2016

See previous Delectable notes in 2017 and 2019. Quite a rich Ruby red. Aromatics of black and blue fruits, a cranberry note with a tarry charcoal note on nose and palate. HH said coal dust and I totally agree. Steve Pannell is recognised as Australia’s premium maker of alternative varieties and this wine proves that. We made his Nebbiolo the champion wine of the Toowoomba Wine Show a couple of years ago. Have the last one in say 2 years time. — 2 years ago

Fresh, but with an ripe apple and pineapple you don't feel citrus bitterness. — 7 months ago

McLaren Vale Garnacha

2019 vintage. Very pretty and perfumed representation of the variety. Red fruit flavors of lingonberry, raspberry, wild strawberry with rose petals, stemmy herbal thing, incense, and sandalwood. Pinot Noir drinker's Grenache. Officially the coolest wine label I've seen in a while! — 2 years ago
