The The Pawn Wine Co Story
The Pawn Wine Co. began in 2002 as an experiment between friends - winemaker Tom Keelan and vigneron David Blows. The pair saw that alternative grape varieties were being used as blending tools by the bigger corporate wine companies instead of being stand alone artisinal Adelaide Hills wines of provenance. Tom and David realised the potential of these varietals to make “old world” wine styles and determined that they be allowed to shine in their own right. The first vintage of The Pawn received so many accolades, Tom set out to identify other idyllic viticultural sites and hand selected parcels of fruit within the Adelaide Hills to produce wines that are 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, Adelaide Hills, Artisinal wine.
Why's this wine for you?

There’s the stalwarts, the icons, the classics. The producers that have been around for decades and decades and who we look to for a classic taste of the Australian wine landscape.

But then…there is the new guard. The producers who push the boundaries and get us REALLY excited. Founded in 2020 (a veritable baby!) this is The Pawn Co. and their Jeu-de-Fin (Endgame) Chardonnay 2019.

Simple premise. Premium hand selected Adelaide Hills fruit. Small batch wine making. The results speak for themselves. Now, as you probably know, our Wine Collective Panel is a picky bunch (pardon the pun), but this modern expression of Chardy earned it a big tick and 94 points from their discerning palates.

How's it taste?
A great example of a classic style chardonnay with a modern feel. Strong butterscotch notes are held well by a solid backbone of oak. But this is brightened by a refreshing acidity, giving it a touch of a modern feel.
