SC Pannell Old McDonald Vineyard Grenache 2017

A very cool, mild and stress-free vintage for vines, not winemakers! Good winter and spring rains were followed by a very mild, long summer. The results are wines with ample fruit complexity and great natural acidity. Most important however is the delicious fruit freshness and balance. 100% Grenache from 75-year-old vines from the Old McDonald vineyard in Blewitt Springs. Perfect bunches...

Product Description

A very cool, mild and stress-free vintage for vines, not winemakers! Good winter and spring rains were followed by a very mild, long summer. The results are wines with ample fruit complexity and great natural acidity. Most important however is the delicious fruit freshness and balance.
100% Grenache from 75-year-old vines from the Old McDonald vineyard in Blewitt Springs. Perfect bunches were hand-harvested on 4th March, early for Grenache. Traditionally vinified in small open-top fermenters with 20% whole bunches. Eleven days on skins before gentle pressing. Transferred to a 4500-litre, eight-year-old French-oak vat for maturation before being bottled without filtration nine months later. Alcohol 14.5%; pH 3.62; TA 5.7g/L. – Stephen Pannell

A strikingly fresh and focused expression with bright aromas of raspberries and boysenberries. Some spices, leafy notes and wild herbs. The palate is lithe and succulent. Really faultless stretch and build, as well as terrific freshness. Drink now or hold. 96 Points James Suckling

It’s pretty, kind of rosy in perfume, a little bit juicy, but also dry and beautifully structured. There’s fine insistent tannin giving it shape and texture, almost to Nebbiolo character with its gentle brick dust grip, red fruit and cherry, a layer of spice, new leather and scrub herb, and a long cool, composed finish. Flat out beautiful. Succulence with a serious nature. Bravo. 96 Points The Wine Front
