S.C. Pannell Syrah 2018
S.C. Pannell Syrah 2018 is highly perfumed, vibrant and complex with prominent blackforest fruits, tapenade, all spice, terracotta, dark cocoa powder and tamarind. The palate of this wine is the most interesting element. The flavours lead you to think that it is quite light, but as you taste the wine, the power and intensity unfurls to reveal a density that carries the palate further.
Effortless wine, this one. It’s all blue fruit, spice, lavender and grilled meat. Such perfume! (but savoury too). Svelte and spicy, medium-bodied at most, juicy blue and black fruit, intensity of small berries with fine silty, almost Turkish coffee tannin, black olive and dried herb on a long finish of poise and exotic scents. It’s a beauty. - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, 95 Points
