Description

WHO?

Quite simply, Steven Pannell is one of Australia’s finest and most imaginative winemakers, having spent a decade working as chief red wine maker at Hardys before striking out on his own in 2004. Steve has worked all over the world, including in Italy with Aldo Vajra in Barolo and in France for Domaine Dujac and Pousse d’Or. He is a two-time winner of the fabled Jimmy Watson trophy, the most prestigious wine award in Australia, given annually to the producer of the best one-year-old dry red wine in the Royal Melbourne Wine Show.

WHERE?

The McLaren Vale wine region, in the north-west of Fleurieu Peninsula, is located approximately 35 kilomters south of Adelaide. Grapes for this wine comes from two sites: one from the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs bringing the high-toned aromatics and the ironstone riddled gravel of McLaren Vale. The vineyards are on deep sand with a north westerly exposure and are simply managed, without pesticides, to ensure the optimal expression of the fruit.

WHY?

From the Latin Bassus, meaning low, Basso is low in additions (low-sulphur, low yields, without filtration) and speaks clearly of the place from which it comes. Naturally fermented, shows fresh-fruit aromas of bright red berries and watermelon, with a touch of rose petal and musk leading on to a plush and juicy palate. Youthful, medium-bodied and lively, with a long, succulent finish bolstered by sandy tannins and a hint of dark spice.
