"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

"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."  Mike Bennie.  The Wine Front
