Wine of the Week AU

S.C. Pannell The Vale Grenache Shiraz 2016, McLaren Vale, AUD $37

Deliciously warm, inviting and fleshy on the palate with succulent red cherries enhanced by spice on the nose. It is the intense concentration of flavour that makes this wine stand out from the pack. Lovely now though it will benefit from a little time in bottle to mellow and evolve. (Screwcap)
