Next up in our showcase of new wines we have the Field Street Shiraz from S. C. Pannell. This Aussie Shiraz will be one you won't forget in a hurry...
Stephen Pannell is one of the best and brightest of the new generation of Australian winemakers, having spent a decade working as chief red wine maker at Hardys before striking out on his own in 2004. Steve has worked all over the world, including in Italy with Aldo Vajra in Barolo and in France for Domaine Dujac and Pousse d'Or. His broad experience has helped shape his approach to winemaking and his wines are true expressions of the grapes and vineyards of McLaren Vale. In October 2015, Steve was named Winemaker of the Year by the consumer wine magazine, Gourmet Traveller Wine.
The Field Street Shiraz is made from fruit sourced from a single nine hectare vineyard. The original Shiraz plantings date back to 1970 and the vineyard faces west to the Gulf of St Vincent. In every sense this wine is at the heart of the S.C. Pannell label. This wine is stripped back from the artifice of winemaking to express the purity and breadth of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

On the nose there is a lovely purity of fruit - aromas of violets are coupled with the beautiful perfume of a punnet full of fresh berries. On the palate it is medium to full bodied with lovely, earthy tannins and a lifted finish.
This stonker will a fantastic addition to any meal so come a grab a couple!
