Moscato for grown-ups
About the Wine
A blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris, the Aromatico is one of Steve Pannell's most popular wines at cellar door and, as he describes, "Moscato for grown-ups".
It is modelled on the leaner and zippier white wines of Northern Italy, rather than the more unctuous versions of these blends found in Alsace.
It's not as complex or intense as many of Pannell's iconic wines, but nor is it designed to be. It's fresh and fun, and if you want an easy-drinking, flavoursome Summer white that isn't yet-another Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio then give this is a go!

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.
