Alexander Johnston purchased ninety seven hectares of land in 1892 which he named Pirramimma, an Aboriginal phrase meaning the moon and the stars. At Pirramimma, the harvesting is targetted to the winemaker's preferred scheduling as opposed to mother nature's dictates. The exactingly husbanded vines have been trained for generations to yield fruit that receives the highly polished, father to son winemaking traditions with elacrity. Grapes are harvested at full maturity, pressed and vinified, followed by a year's maturation in American oak barrels under the winery's naturally cool rammed earth warehouse.
Deep brick red in colour. Rich red cherry, spiced blackberry and cedary oak, cocoa, vanilla and light clove. Complex barrel characteristics, the palate shows a mosaic of dark berry fruits, briary blackcurrant, mulberries and chocolate complemented by toasty oak and integrated with hints of mint and tomato, a ripe tannin backbone all adding to a silky voluptuous mouthful. A rich firmly structured wine with all the elements in complete harmony.
