Steve Pannell is one of the winemaking legends of Australia, garnering praise home and away for almost a decade now. This week we have his Koomilya Vineyard offerings for you, including the brand new CP Block Cabernet Sauvignon. Noteworthy indeed, the grapes used for the CP used to go into the infamous Bin 707!

THE WINES

2017 Tempranillo Touriga Nacional - $49  $42
"Blackberry, fruits of the forest, red toffee- apple, roast beetroot,  smoky paprika & Dutch cocoa. The palate has layers of red toffee apple and blackberry on entry followed by the earthier elements of cocoa and paprika finishing with Touriga’s signature fruit mince and plum pudding. There is a tension to the texture from a firm spine surrounded by generosity. The tannins ripple and repeat folding back on themselves." - Steve Pannell

2015 Cabernet Shiraz - $69  $60
"One of Pannell's greatest talents as a winemaker is his blending, and this is a shining example of a deft touch. The vintage has delivered superbly vibrant red and blue fruits, cassis, blueberries, red plums, raspberries and blackberries. The palate has silky textural appeal, gliding and building layers of fine velvety tannins that hold layers of bright fruit. Deceptively long, powerful and elegant. Drink now or hold. " - 95 Points, James Suckling

2015 DC Block Shiraz - $110  $95
"A captivating wine that marries the best of the region’s supple, approachable shiraz style with a wealth of detail and astutely assembled tannin structure. The nose is bathed in ripe red berries, delivering a very nicely curated array of earthy and sweetly spicy complexity. The palate has a seductive allure as it is very supple and packed with fleshy, ripe red plums. The tannins are suspended in helix-like form and wrapped around a long core of plush, deep blackberries, red and dark plums. Deeper chocolate and plums to close. Superb. Drink or hold. This will cellar nicely." - 97 Points, James Suckling

2016 CP Block Cabernet Sauvignon - $110  $95
"Typical cassis and red currant to start then bramble and dry dirt road finishing with sumac, Za’atar, rose hip, cranberry and mahogany. Perfectly ripe Cabernet with no herbaceous character. An open knit palate, generous and opulent without being over done. Fine tannins beautifully resolved that carry the finish well over the horizon." - Steve Pannell
