This GST is a bit like a blend of all the previous GST vintages; with the richness and fruit of the 2014, the perfume and elegance of the 2015, and the tannins that are the hallmark of 2016.
About the Wine
The S.C. Pannell GST has been a hugely successful wine for Steve Pannell over the last few years, winning multiple accolades across the national Wine Show circuit.
In many ways, this wine typifies Steve's philosophy on Australian red wines. The GST is about freshness and balance, a red wine that puts drinkability and versatility front and centre. All three components of the blend working in harmony.
Steve describes the 2016 like this: "This GST is a bit like a blend of all the previous GST vintages; with the richness and fruit of the 2014, the perfume and elegance of the 2015, and the tannins that are the hallmark of 2016."
Australian red wine doesn't get more glugable than this. Fans of this wine in the past should buy with supreme confidence.
