Elegant and southern Rhône in sensibility.
About The Wine
First release of the GT as a single block Shiraz - the GT can eiher stand for GrafTed or Gewurztraminer, as it is a block of Gewurz that was grafted over to Shiraz. Can you see you traces of the aromatic white....?
It's Shiraz that has been amplified all around without being OTT in the slightest. Huge spicy and floral smells, sweet-fruited meaty and tarry on the palate with rich, velvety waves of flavour.
Steve Pannell does genius things with his favourite Koomilya vineyard, and this brand new wine further adds to his already formidable arsenal of great McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Quite simply, Stephen Pannell is one of Australia’s finest and most imaginative winemakers.
