Just over three years ago I helped out at the annual trade day for Cellarhand Wines here in Melbourne, and as a thank you I was gifted a few bottles of wine. They have both been sitting in my cellar since then, and I decided to open one on this edition of Let’s Taste. Steve Pannell is one of the most celebrated winemakers in Australia, and amongst his gems is the S.C. Pannell McLaren Vale Grenache, already a multiple trophy winner. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, and be sure to like share and subscribe!

Wine shows have a long and important history in the Australian wine industry, and we are now coming to the end of the show season for 2014. There are few greater triumphs as a wine producer than receiving a coveted trophy at one of the many shows run in major capitals and regional locations. Sam Hooper from Cellarhand Wines joins me again to discuss the nature of wine shows, and how they are staying relevant in a modern and dynamic wine market.
