S.C. Pannell Tanino 2016

Tanino is Spanish for tannin and as the name sugests it is a dry tannic red wine that flies in the face of the current red wine trend that lighter is better.

It strikes Steve as odd that Australian winemakers seek out and drink imported red wine like Chianti and Barolo, Rhone and Rioja that are built on tannin yet the Australian show system is currently rewarding light soft wine. We drink tannic wine with food, especially fatty foods, because it binds to the protein and cleans the pallet. As a person that loves to cook, Steve wants the food he makes to sit in balance with the wine he makes, and in Steve’s words its “time to embrace tannin” in Australian winemaking.

40% Malbec/33% Shiraz/13% Tinta Cao/11% Touriga

Restrained and savoury upon opening but with air and a moment of composure black cherry, blood plum, mulberry and violet aromas escape leading a palate of dark fruit with a sanguine edge. Plush, svelte, tight and long with ample earthy and peresitent tannins that despite the name do not overpower but support a dense core of dark fruit.

CELLARING The tannins, as the name suggests, will help help this wine in cellar for as long as you can keep it or up to 15 years whichever comes first.

Min Quantity: 3
