Above all, these wines look and taste, Koomilya.
About The Wine
This is a very special release for virtuoso winemaker, Steve Pannell.
Koomilya is a vineyard on the very edge of the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale. This site has grown grapes for over 100 years and now finds itself under Steve's watchful eye.
It's one of Steve's proudest accomplishments, and rightfully so, the wine is incredible. This is Shiraz as pure and unadorned as possible. The truest representation of this special site that Steve could produce.
A wine for the real collectors, this is premium McLaren Vale Shiraz at its seductive best.

Quite simply, Stephen Pannell is one of Australia’s finest and most imaginative winemakers. He’s a Jimmy Watson Trophy winner, a McLaren Vale Bushing King winner, a two-time Max Schubert Trophy winner, International Red Winemaker of the Year and Decanter Magazine’s 50 Most Influential Contributors to the World of Wine. Nick Stock described him as potentially “one of the greatest Australian winemakers ever to make wines in our age”.
Steve’s wines are made with modern Australian food and wine culture at the front of mind. The wines come from a range of stunning McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills vineyards, and are made from sustainable varieties that properly suit his South Australian climate. They're built around brightness of fruit and savoury tannin structure, and whatever your poison is Steve has you covered!
He is truly one of the most forward thinking and inspirational Australian winemakers alive today.
