Pirramimma was founded by Alexander Campbell Johnston in 1892 and has been owned and operated by the Johnston family ever since. Winemaking at Pirramimma has been a family affair for over 126 years and is now in the capable hands of Geoff Johnston, a winemaking graduate of Charles Sturt University, grandson of the winery’s founder.
The bouquet displays spicy red plum, mulberry, bramble and subtle cedary oak, with hints of coconut and vanilla. The palate shows distinctive regional flavours of cranberry, Kirsch cherry, wild loganberries, black plum and toasted Mocha oak, complemented by spice and savoury notes.
This is impressively fruited and immensely complex on the nose showing dark fruit richness together with cake spice, dark chocolate and vanillin oak nuances. The palate displays outstanding concentration and power, splendidly complemented by velvety mouthfeel and chalky tannins. Magnificently composed and structured with layers of delectable, gratifying flavours. At its best: 2022 to 2036. Date Tasted: July 2020; Price: $70.00; Rating: 96 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
