S.C.Pannell the label was established by Steve Pannell and wife Fiona in 2004, but Steve's journey to winemaking really dates back to 1969, where as a toddler he grew up on one of Australia's most iconic boutique wineries, Moss Wood in Margaret River.

Steve's holistic philosophy to winemaking starts with our climate, empahasises the importance on the vineyard, as well as wine's relation to food we love to grow, cook, and eat.

Stephen Pannell was also named Gourmet Traveller Wine Australian Winemaker of the Year in 2015.

Stephen’s extensive winemaking knowledge and experience has been garnered over years working with some of the world’s most prestigious wineries. He was Chief Red Winemaker at BRL Hardy from 1999 to 2003 and has worked 14 European vintages in Burgundy, Bordeaux, Barolo and Priorat.

Other highlights in include International Red Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge in London, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show, twice winning the Max Schubert Trophy at the Adelaide Wine Show as well as being listed as one of the 50 most influential contributors to the world of wine by Decanter Magazine.

"A conversation with Steve Pannell still rings in my head when I see his wines. His ideal for his wines is that they are drunk with gusto, with a currency that suits Australian climate, lifestyle, food/produce and general culture of drinking. Therefore, though his wines are often complex in their layering of aromas and flavours, and at times tannin structure (tannin is your friend, we both chime!), there is an appeal in early approach and a drinkability that is compelling. Or so the theory goes. And yet the wines are typically on a pedestal amongst the cognoscenti, or at least leading a charge into the fray. Here, grenache (garnacha) from McLaren Vale, nouveau styled but with a bit more under the hood.

Rich-ish scents of warm berries, faint mocha powder, liquorice, fennel, pepper. Come hither and generous in a way. Soft in the palate, slurpy textured, dark fruit, faint herb, touch of cola, gently sweet then a smudge of chompy tannin followed by licks of pomegranate-esque acidity. It’s got plenty tucked into its medium weight frame and yet the skol factor is very high. You could pause over this in a big glass, or knock a chill into it and drink from a tumbler. One of those totally moreish wines."

"This is Pannell's take on a modern Grenache, which is sourced from McLaren Vale. It's designed as an early release and has no filtration at bottling. It's a beautifully seductive expression of Grenache, with perfumes on the nose and succulent medium-bodied fruit right on the palate. So, so good for current drinking."
93 Points - Ray Jordan, The West Australian, Feb 2018
