Pirramimma Vineyard Select Shiraz Grenache Tempranillo 2016
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 fresh fruit driven wine displays aromas of red cherry, pink plum, bramble and raspberry, with hints of red frangipani and rose petal. The medium weighted palate delivers spicy mulberry, fruit cake, pomegranate and toffee apple notes, enhanced by traces of cranberry, pepper and subtle oak.
It's wonderfully fruited and gorgeously styled, showing blackberry, juicy plum, vanilla, cedar and subtle game characters on the nose with a hint of dark cocoa. The palate displays excellent weight and roundness, combined with richly textured mouthfeel, offering fabulous drinking. Alcohol: 14.7%; Price: $40.00; At its best: Now to 2030.
