Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

The appearance is inky cherry red with solid depth and long viscous alcohol legs.

Aroma

The bouquet jumps out of the glass with earthy soil, iodine and vegetative herbs. It has charred oak and sweet berry fruit.

Palate

The early palate has an initial rush of blackberry and plum fruit before the herbal, earthy characters dominate the mid palate. It then takes on more savoury elements of black olives, cured meats and spices. Tight dusty tannins give a full, dry mouth-feel while the finish is long and clean with a lingering, smoky after taste.

Food Matching

This is a rich and versatile style of Shiraz. The palate weight is solid and full with a luxurious silky texture making it a great match to strongly flavoured meat dishes like crispy pork belly or Spanish style spicy sausage.

Cellaring Potential

This is a wine made to last many years in bottle. Over the next 2 years it will display the primary characters of fruit and earthiness which will slowly develop into more complex secondary flavours. It has the power and intensity to age up to 10 years and it will still pack a punch.

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”.
