My obsession with Piedmont continues with the much underrated and under-appreciated Barbera.
About The Wine
Steve Pannell has a deep love for the wines of Piedmont. His prowess with Nebbiolo is well known, having produced one of the country's benchmark examples for the last decade.
Here he takes on the lesser-known Piedmontese variety, Barbera, with great results.It's made in as an open, juicy and vibrant expression of the variety. Built for easy drinking and the perfect match for a rustic wood-fired pizza.
If you're seeking out top examples of Italian varieties, Steve Pannell's offerings should be on the top of your list.
About S.C. Pannell
Quite simply, Steven 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.
