Stephen Pannell (of S.C. Pannell) brings a nigh-on perfect balance of power and precision with the release of these two Koomilya single block reds - the DC and JC Shiraz. Between these two drops, one will find deep and textural flavours, ranging from licorice, blackberry, and spice, to lavender, walnut, and herbs. While both are opening sublimely right now, their palates will only grow more complex, rewarding cellaring for several more years
2018 Koomilya DC Block Shiraz - $99 per bottle ; $110 RRP
“A blueberry and spiced bramble berry nose with red and dark plum and a sweet, fresh-turned earthy edge. This leads to a bold, rich and round palate that spoons out a big mouthful of ripe plum and blueberry fruit flavor. Boldly elemental for now with essence-like depth of blueberry fruit at the finish. Smooth long-form tannins. Holds very long. Drinkable now but better after 2024. Screw cap” - 98 Points, Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
"Liquorice, the sort of brittle dark toffee my Mum used to make, blackberry and blackcurrant, sea spray and oyster shells, biscuit spices, and thyme. It’s full of juicy and fresh small dark berried flavour, ferrous and deep, layers of pumice stone tannin, and for all the darkness, it’s still so light on its feet. Finish is very long, with a spiced poached strawberry and rhubarb thing happening, and lavish stony tannin. Wonderful." - 96 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
2018 Koomilya JC Block Shiraz - $99 per bottle ; $110 RRP
“This parcel is rich in limestone and ironstone and gives a bold delivery of ripe, glossy red and dark berry and plum fruit aromas and flavors. The plushness is so impressive, blooming with big flavors. Delicious and almost hedonistically fruited but precisely balanced. Concentrated and packed with fine, rich, smooth tannins. You can drink it now but try after 2025 to see more of what’s inside. Screw cap.” - 99 Points, Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
"Earthy, saline, fragrant, deep, special. Liquorice, bramble fruit, walnut, spice, charcoal, dried flowers and herbs. Thick tanning rolling through the mouth, nori and lavender perfume, all the berries but not fruity, as such, powerful and stony, with chew and freshness on a superb long finish. And, indeed, it’s the length of flavour and presence that marks this out as a special wine. Outstanding. An Australian classic. Very long term." - 96+ Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
