The Pawn Wine Company 'El Desperado' Red Blend 2019

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $24.00
Everything about this wine screams fun! The body is sumptuous, with its blend of Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Shiraz and some Montepulciano for good measure, the palate is all sorts of intriguing with cherries, spice, sarsaparilla and red currants. A lot like chatting to the most interesting person at the party, it leaves you feeling all the better for having had the experience.

When Tom Keelan and his mate David Blows were told their fruit wasn’t good enough, they saw it as a call to arms, a chance to rally and show the big boys how good it could be.

It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets. Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. ... Read Full Article

This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes maturing
