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.
This bright and vibrant wine exhibits a bouquet of red rose, spicy raspberry, pomegranate and red cherry, with hints of subtle nutty cedary oak. With the palate delivering raspberry puree, dried cranberry, red currant and nutmeg, intermingled with Christmas pudding and spices.
This is a magnificent rendition of the variety; the inviting bouquet shows dark plum, dried cherry, vanilla pod, cake spice and smoked game characters, leading to a concentrated palate that’s expansive and mouthfilling. It’s wonderfully composed and styled with flowing texture backed by fine grainy tannins. Price: $70.00; Alcohol: 14.8%; At its best: Now to 2030. Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
