S. C. Pannell, 'Dead End', Tempranillo, 2018, McLaren Vale, Australia

£11.88 £15.99

This Tempranillo is very fresh and aromatic on the nose.  Full of cherries, fresh blackberry, and touches of root beer and sweet spice. Medium on the palate and quite soft, this is lighter than what you would expect and expertly balanced. Youthful and would be wonderful with BBQ grills, charcuterie, cheese, and nibbles. It's quite delicate and would be best served a touch chilled!
