Top Aussie red

S.C. Pannell Tempranillo Touriga, McLaren Vale 2011 $25

The cool, wet summer of 2010-11 has imparted peppery and vegetal aromas, while the palate is medium-bodied and slightly edgy, with some leanness and not a lot of flesh. Smooth, appealing current drinking. A nice take on Portuguese-style reds. Ready to drink, now to 2020. 14 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: veal saltimbocca
