Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The appearance is a welcoming, bright cherry red with deep intensity and some earthy, brick red hues on the rim and long alcohol legs.

Aroma

The bouquet is full of bright, exotic spice, ripe dark berry fruit and subtle oak. The background has savoury notes of earth and game meats. Behind the upfront aromas there are more delicate hints of violet petals and sweet confectionary.

Palate

The opening palate is intense with ripe plums, anise and nutmeg spice balanced by a gamey earthiness. The Shiraz tannins are firm with solid grip leading to a smooth dry finish. There is a noticeable alcohol lift that enhances the spicy richness on the back palate.

Food Matching

McLaren Vale is strongly influenced by the traditional flavours of the Mediterranean … savoury smoked meats, olives, rich tomato and basil sauce. These flavours are a perfect match for the spice and intensity of this classic Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro blend.

Cellaring Potential

Cellaring is not required. This wine is delicious drinking now with some lively, youthful lift, however with screw cap closure and the right conditions it will cellar for many years. It has big alcohol and is nicely balanced for longevity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

“Pan Terra”,

literally means “across land” which generally recognises the many different regions across Australia. “Seven Terranes” however refers to the geology across McLaren Vale.

McLaren Vale is acknowledged around the globe as one of Australia’s premier wine growing regions. The quality is profoundly influenced by the physical environment or “Terroir”, specifically the soil structure and mineral composition of the bedrock as well as climatic conditions. McLaren Vale is divided into seven distinct geological “terranes” dating back 750 million years. Each terrane has an individual influence on wine flavour.

There is a small climatic variation across the region; however the greatest diversity is in the geology which ranges in age from 750 million to less than 10 thousand years. The seven Terranes are The Ancient Rocks, Limestone Country, Clay Plains of Aldinga, The Piedmont, Talus Slope, Alluvial Flats and Sand and Sandstone which is subdivided into Maslin Sands, Pirramimma Sandstone, Ochre Cove Formation and Semaphore Sand.

For further information, the state Government of South Australia publishes the comprehensive document ”Geology of the McLaren Vale Wine Region”.
