Wine of the Week AU

S.C. Pannell Smart Grenache 2017, Clarendon, AUD $60

A fine example of grenache with a concentrated core of cherry and sarsaparilla with earthy hints of oyster. Despite its concentration, it has an elegance and a brightness. Expertly crafted. Made from dry-grown bush vines with over 60 years of age. (Screwcap)
