Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep inky red with magenta and dark plum hues.

Aroma

The bouquet intense and powerful with rich earthy herbs, wet clay and smoky ground coffee. It has obvious fresh oak with an herbaceous background of mint and tomato leaf.

Palate

The palate is uncompromising with youthful blackcurrants and cassis flowing onto the early palate then slowly unfolding to reveal layers of coconut, herbs, oak and smoky tobacco. As the flavours build on the tongue they become more complex showing characters of spiced pudding, licorice and roasted coffee beans. It's firm rich and full with a dry finish and lingering savoury aftertaste. It has solid tannins that give a big chewy sensation and then finish with a chocolaty smoothness.

Food Matching

Enjoy with a rare rib eye steak or continental smoked sausage. It's rich and powerful with dominant characters that need strongly flavoured gravy or sauces.

Cellaring Potential

This is a big youthful Cabernet that will reward cellaring for up to 10 years. The raw power will become more rounded and bottle age will add complexity and texture.

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”.
