This is Pirramimma’s 1st Tempranillo. They reckon it’s made in a Joven style, intended for early drinking which caused a few chuckles on the tasting panel given that it will likely cellar well for 5 – 8 years and drank better 24 hours after opening. Lots of spice and red fruits here. The wine displays a lifted bouquet of blueberry, perfumed red rose, pomegranate with hints of musk and apricot. The palate showing logan berry, cranberries, crab apple and tangy red cherry, all entwined with fruit pastilles and hints of tobacco.This fruit driven wine is ready for immediate consumption.

Pirramimma have been around for 120 years quietly making old fashioned, high quality wines. The last 10 years has been particularly exciting with the wines striking a balance between traditional sensibilities and a more modern expression of fruit. We had 16 wines on the bench and every single one of them met with unanimous approval from the tasting panel… which is very rare indeed.
