Pirramimma Vineyard Select GSM 2018
- Textured, savoury
- McLaren Vale
We’re on a bit of a roll with the Pirramimma wines recently and the response from our mofos has been overwhelmingly positive. No surprises there, as they are great wines. This GSM has a few years on it and is smack-bang in the middle of a great drinking window. And Pirramimma took care of all the cellaring work for us. This is a new release, but previous ones have been reviewed with enthusiasm by James Halliday. We’re confident this will be as well.

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
