S.C.Pannell Wines has continued a seemingly unstoppable run of recent success by taking out the 2015 McLaren Vale Bushing King crown with the 2014 Grenache Shiraz Touriga.

This caps a remarkable 12-month run of market accolades including a Jimmy Watson Trophy success, outstanding wine show results, and receiving the current Gourmet Wine Traveller Winemaker of the Year Award.

Steve explained: “All reward and recognition is a huge encouragement, but it is particularly humbling to be acknowledged by your peers in your own back yard. ”

“Above all, the team is really excited by what this means for the region, and to see Grenache-based wines that are savoury, light and detailed being recognised is big part of the way forward for McLaren Vale. I think we are all looking to craft relevant, exciting wines that work well with our food and our Mediterranean lifestyle, and McLaren Vale is the ideal region to meet this challenge!”
