Origin: McLaren Vale, South Australia.
Tasting Note: Quite simply, Stephen Pannell is one of Australia’s finest and most imaginative winemakers.

The Basso is a lighter, fresher, more 'smashable' version of Grenache from Steve Pannell. It's Steve's minimal-intervention wine. It's bottled with a minimal amount of sulphur, unfined and unfiltered. Steve's wines are all about melding with our Australian culture and this is the perfect fit for BBQs and beach cricket. It's lighter in body, dappled with the lacy tannins and spice of early-picked Grenache - It's just a great anytime/anywhere red from one of the country's finest winemakers.
Cellaring: Up to 10 years
Food/Dish: Venison with red wine sauce.
Enjoy at: Crown Cellar & Co.
