Our most tannic and serious TT yet.
About the Wine
The S.C. Pannell 'Temp Touriga' has for many years now been one of Australia's most successful 'alternative variety' wines, and the 2016 is another flawless release.
Portuguese inspired yet quintessentially Australian, it represents Steve's idea that wine should complement our climate and culture, not work against it. Amen to that.
Steve called it "our most tannic and serious TT yet", and whether you're a lover of this wine or a Temp Touriga rookie, there is scarcely a better value red wine in McLaren Vale. Giddy up!
About S.C. Pannell
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.

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.
