Almost 140 years later, the cottage has been restored to its former glory by relatives of Reilly, the family Ardill, once again it is a hive of activity, home to the eminent and award winning range of Reilly..

There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

In 1892 Alexander Johnston purchased ninety seven hectares of rich farmland southeast of the fledgling village at McLaren Vale. Today, Pirramimma's mature vineyards consistently yield the region's finest Cabernet. The comerstone philosophy is to produce estate wines from home grown fruit, ensuring that the highest quality standards are met. Harvested from vines grown on original root stock, grapes are picked throughout the cool of night from the Pethick Road block, a well balanced terroir planted in 1967. Primary fermentation in the original Pirramimma concrete vats is followed by twenty four months in a selection of new and prior use American and French oak barrels.
Deep black/ brick red colour. Lifted blackcurrants, violets and mint dominate the bouquet, bramble notes and hints of mocha oak. The palate shows intense briar and blackberry, red currant and black cherry flavours over hints of quince and structured, toasty oak. A lingering, currant and blackberry filled finish, on a length of malleable, licorice tannins. Match to the finest beef or gourmandise game.
