About
I make no apologies, I love Sauvignon Blanc! 2017 was cool, mild vintage that produced exceptionally natural fruit-driven wines.

About the Wine

Steve Pannell may be better known for his reds, but this Sauvignon Blanc remains one of the country's better examples of this ever-popular grape.

Sourcing fruit from the variety's Australian home in the Adelaide Hills, this is pure fruited, zippy and zesty, and with impeccable balance.

It's great with food, and whether you're a Sauv Blanc lover or hater this is just an all-too-easy to enjoy white wine.

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.
