Winery Tasting Notes

Our first ever Vintage of El Desperado was 2011, and will always be known in Australian wine history as the vintage from hell, as many vineyards succumb to the wet summer. For the Pawn, we sacrificed making our full range of wines that year to create a brand new style wine. Although we did not set out to make the El Desperado before that vintage, when you taste this wine, by hell you will be glad we did.

This red blend This wine was made from grapes sourced from our Macclesfield vineyard. A blend of 4 varieties, we have taken the finest characteristics of each, to craft a medium bodied wine that is a mouth filling textural flavour bomb, which will accompany any food at any occasion.

The Sangiovese brings lifted aromatics of cherry cola and raspberry, with fine tannins on the palate. Tempranillo adds a perfumed lift and spicy richness, the Shiraz delivering deep colour, berry fruits, pepper and velvety tannins and the Montepulciano adds mind boggling colour and the ability to say a word that sounds sexy.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Pawn had its beginning in 2002 as a "once" off experiment between viticulturist & winemaker Tom Keelan and vigneron David Blows. They had a craving to make into wine a small parcel of Petit Verdot from their Springhill Vineyards in Macclesfield. This wine was originally for their own consumption as both were self proclaimed aficionados of this variety.

The pair had become perturbed and jaded that certain grape varieties were being used as blending tools by the bigger wine companies and that the potential of alternative wine styles wasn't being allowed to shine within the wine industry.

The resultant first vintage was a "cracker of a wine" and suggested to them that an opportunity existed to develop a wine range which rebelled against the corporate players of the wine industry. Tom and David began to identify idyllic viticultural sites and hand selected parcels of fruit within the Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek to produce wines that were not only a bit unconventional, but enjoyable to drink, incredibly food friendly, and made in a style that reflects their true origins – the ultimate in hand crafted wine.
