The wine has a lifted bouquet of Kirsch cherry, violets, boysenberry and cedary oak. With the palate exhibiting spicy blackberry, musk, tangy Morello cherry and Santa Rosa plum, complemented by hints of blueberry and kalamata olive.
The fine grain textured tannins, subtle oak and savoury varietal flavours are beautifully integrated into a long sustained finish.
Accolades and Awards:
94 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Dense crimson-purple; Pirramimma has some of the oldest petit verdot plantings in Aus, if not the oldest. This has relaxed power, with layer upon layer of dark berry fruits interleaved with ripe tannins, oak a minor player. Has time on its side, but no issue if enjoyed now rather than later."
From the Winery
Our mature Petit Verdot vines relished the exceptional 2014 vintage, producing a broad spectrum of excellent flavours. For this elegant wine we selected fruit from the Siberia, OTC and Katunga vineyards, each block providing its own distinctive profile.
