Pirramimma Regional Range Shiraz 2017
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
We hardly feel like we have to say much about this wine. We saw three words, and we were hooked. Pirramimma, Barossa, shiraz. You can thank us later. We needn’t tell you how iconic Pirramimma are in the wine game, based in McLaren Vale for over 100 years. Their red wines are high in demand, and we’re not surprised. They’re unbelievable value for money, and you know what you get on the label is what you get in the glass. That leads me to say- you know this wine is going to be rich and sumptuous. It’s all Barossa shiraz, with characters of Ripe black plum, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of fig. If this wasn’t in the context of a wine write up, you’d be forgiven to think we’re talking about some kind of dessert. Fair to say, this is just as irresistible.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
