About

Ever passionate about the evolution of Australian wine, Steve Pannell takes his first swing at Montepulciano here and knocks it out of the park. This wine is built in a medium-bodied, drink-me-now style, perfect for modern Australian alfresco dining. It's a classic S.C. Pannell wine. Next to no sign of oak with freshness of fruit front and centre. For a first crack at the variety, unsurprisingly, Steve has nailed this. Perfect with a slight chill from the fridge, this is the drinkability of the modern Australian red writ large. If you've been a fan of his Tempranillo/Touriga explorations in the past, the Montepulciano will be right up your alley.

What it Tastes Like

Smells like a fresh punnet of berries, mixed with a fistful of crushed, dried leaves. Steve says roasted beetroot, which is a good call. There’s some spicy sausage notes to it as well framed by fine, silty tannins but all in all it's just a smashable red wine that is absolutely begging for a slight chill. Awesome stuff from Steve once again. Yummo.
