Why do we love this wine?

Pirramimma doesn’t produce this wine every year, opting only to do so in exceptional vintages. It’s named to honour Alexander Campbell Johnston, the founder of Pirramimma who planted his first vines nearly 125 years ago. The wine is comprised of 48% cab sav with smaller portions of shiraz, petit verdot, tannat, merlot and malbec. There’s some serious attention to detail in the blending before two years of ageing in a mix of new and old French oak. It’s a big, yet structured wine expressing a nose of blackberry, violets, cherry and olives. The palate continues the cherry characteristic, complemented by boysenberry, musk and licorice. The tannin is ripe, providing a sustained finish and graceful ageing for 15 years. ACJ is a man worth honouring and this is a wine up to that task.
