Serious flavour

S.C. Pannell Basso Garnacha 2017, McLaren Vale, AUD $28

A light-bodied, early-drinking, youthful grenache with high-toned sour-cherry, rose petal, Turkish Delight and raspberry aromatics. The palate is light and lively, with background earthiness and warming spice. The longer it is open, the better it gets. A playful, casual style with serious flavour. (Screwcap)
